This Henry Beguelin pocket watch is marked as follows on the dust cover: "Patent Lever, Fully Jeweled, Henry Beguelin, Locle, No. 17537" - It is in a silver hunter case (no hallmark). I know very little about Henry Beguelin! I assume he must have been a Swiss watchmaker. If anyone knows anything about him, or the dates he worked, I would love to know more! I did some research on the Internet and found two other examples of Henry Beguelin watches for sale by auction houses. One was cased in 18K and the other in silver. The 18K had a movement that appeared to be exactly like mine.

Henry Beguelin gold pocket watch
by: Jan

Hi,

I have an 18k triple case pocket watch made by this maker. It was my grt. grandfather. The story that I have is he acquired the gold out in Nevada returned to Cornwall, (1874) and had the watch made from that (?) The case was said to have been made there and the workings were acquired otherwise. It is stamped 41856 well appointed with very clean watch face. 5 min. fast/slow adjustment, and also 21 fine rubies. I had seen a watch from the same in Chicago at the Water Tower in 1980 at Rogers & Holland Jewelers marked for $6,000 (no chain that was additional. That watch was 14k. and not a triple case.

I went into a watch site for collectors and asked on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of excellence how would it be rated. One person responded with an 8
They do not give values thus that way of stating valuation. My grandfather had it valued way back in the 30's in Chicago by someone and was advised the value then was about $900.
It is something our family will not sell.
