    Zenith Pocket watch

    Hi guys and girls, I'm currently trying to decide if I want to have this fixed to keep or just sell it on - I don't know much about pocket watches so if anyone can tell me what I have here I'd appreciate it:)

    Case is Stamped 0.800 for silver, but there is a copper like colour on the front, is that gilding that's been worn off?

    Dial looks very nice I think, and the movement measures approximately 39mm across.

    HI Kasper,
    very simpel is the mystery of the copper like stuff. It s a thin redgold decoration on the silver case. These cases are very common and called galonne. The movement is a good but without any special features a Zenith inhouse one called: N.V.S.I and the size bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Zenith 18-28-3T. One jewel has been replaced in a correct way. Depending on the movement number it was build 1909/13. Maybe sempervivens can precisise with the case number.

    En god dag og holde dem

    Actually, this movement style was not the N.V.S.I but instead the N.V.S.III. This is the older version of the 18-28-3, it should be the Cal. 18 1/2''' N.V.III - which also shows that this one was only made in the lepine (open face) version and that a savonette ("hunter") version doesn't exist.
