We purchased this antique silver pocket watch from an elderly friend of ours, who said it had belonged to her father. It has no name, just the numbers 14344 on the face where the name usually is printed. It has a little key that winds it and it does work. We would like to find out who the maker is and about how old it would be.

Looks very much like mine front and back

I'm not sure how old your posting is or if you found any more info but I'll take a shot in the dark here.

I just began searching for info on a watch that I have which appears almost identical to yours except I have the name W. Grieshaber & Co. where you have 14344. My watch has a face cover that will open as well as a back cover that opens to access the winding and setting stems. There is also an inner cover that opens to reveal the works marked with the makers name on the movement (W.Grieshaber & Co.) written in script.

A Google search for (W. Grieshaber & Co. vintage pocket watch) or combinations thereof has turned up nothing so far related to vintage pocket watches.

As for age, this watch belonged to my Great Grandfather putting it in the late 1800's.

Does this help to advance the cause?

Can you upload a larger picture of the face and back?
