    Default I think it's a fake - Robt Roskell, Liverpool Detached Lever, 13 jewels

    Picked this up at a house auction 50+ years ago for $20. It's marked Robt. Roskell, Liverpool, Detached Lever, 13 jewels (and it works!). The case seems to be silver. I'm not interested in removing the works from the case and doubt I would find anything anyway but... Pictures attached., Thanks for the help.

    It does have a nice looking dial.

    I Googled Roskel and it seems that there
    were a lot of fakes with his name on them.
    But I'm sure you knew that.

    it is a good medium quality 13 -or maybe 15- jewel swiss club footed rectangular lever,a bar movement,intended for the english market.I wouldn´t call it a fake,and it was obviously retailed by Robert Roskell.The movement looks nice and clean,but I´d give it a full service before I wear it regularly.

    Thanks for the information. Can you put an approximate date on this watch? If I removed it from the case might I find more information?

    my guess would be:third quarter of the 19th cent. per style and layout of the movement.HTH
