Pocket Watch Dial and Chain Pocket Watch Case Pocket Watch Movement

Hi, I don't know much about my pocket watch apart from it was passed down from my great grandmother and as my mum died when I was quite young I have not had anyone to ask. The marks inside are hard to work out and anyone I have taken it to to value has wanted to keep it for six weeks and I cant do that. Any help in understanding dating this watch and what it should be insured for would be great?


It works and it was last serviced in the late 80's as far as I can remember and the fine glass has gone but still the original chain etc,

Thanks
Clair

Hi, there are no marks on the face, no marks on the movement. Inside there is some type of hallmark but it's not British, I think its German with some investigation but very little to go on. I will try and get a picture of the hallmark. This is why it's been so hard to identify. I think it dates to either 1890's or 1930's by the only part of the hallmark I've identified, but it's so hard to see.

Anyone wanting to keep your watch for six weeks is wanting to keep your watch for good.

Any marks?

Hi Clair, does your watch have any identifying marks at all? It's hard to tell you any information about your watch without giving us some clues?

Is there anything written on the face (dial) of the watch? And what about the movement, is there anything at all inside?

Even the best detectives need something to go on!
