Unknown gold pocket watch (120 years old)
Hi, I received this unknown gold pocket watch after my grandmother passed and left it to me. All I know is it might be Swiss? It has no serial number, only 39632 found outside and inside the watch. There is a word that I can't read. (pic included).
It is 18k gold plated and about 120 years old. Good condition but it does need a little restoration which I intend to do. Ive brought it in to a few people and they told me that they have no idea what kind of watch it is, just that its very old.
It still works and comes with 3 different keys numbered 5, 6, and 8. I want to know the history of this watch, no doubt its been in my family for years. The face is also gold with a very cool design. The back has a design which has been on a lot of old Swiss watches. It is stamped 18k on the inside of the pocket watch. I have been looking all over the watch but I have not been able to find any European stamp anywhere on the watch. It also has 2 holes for the keys on the back one winds the watch the other moves the minute hand to change the time it goes in either direction.
It comes with a box, the number in the box is 39718. The box is lined with satin, and there was a company name in the box but due to age it has worn off completely. I have been looking around on the Internet and I have not been able to find any other watch like it. I would appreciate ANY feedback on this, its been a week and I have not been able to turn up much.
