I have this 18 size German made pocket watch with "Victoria" on the case and movement. It also has "rud bischof, berlin moabit" on the face and dust cover. The movement looks Swiss? Any information that anyone might have about this watch would be greatly appreciated.

OLD DEPOSE WATCH GEORGE V KING.
by: Sanjeev kumar

Hello friend.

I have the approximately same watch but it has the bust of King George V and his wife's portrait inside. Below the portriat is written "adr. huybers". It is made of silver, white metal, brass, etc. It's dial is broken and has no pins. On the backside is King George's portrait and "our sailor King : H.M. King. George V". written on it. When we open it's window then we see one more portrait of his wife Mary. It's on gilt (think so). The plate and portrait is sculptress. On the frontside of watch is "Souvenir of the Coronation of H.M. George 1911". Running lion and horse on it and "depose" written on machinery with "chronometer prima 15 rubis".

I have one very similar.
by: tempejames

I also have a German Pocket Watch much like yours. I know that where it came from and about how old. A kind of grim circumstance but none the less the truth, I had a very special person that was like a second father to me. He was a great American and a World War Two veteran. He was on the front lines as a gunner team. They were some of the very first infantry to sweep through the Germans all the way to Berlin. He gave me this pocket watch when I was a little boy and I'm 46 now. He took it from a Nazi SS prisoner they had captured in France. So that would make it very old. It was old then. Around 1943.
