    Default Dorset Pocket Watch

    Hello all,

    My knowledge of pocket watches is at present very limited. I have come across the example pictured below, marked Dorset and Swiss Made. I assume it is from the 1960s or 1970s?. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Denis

    Denis,

    Dorset was a brand/model name for at least two Swiss companies - Oris Watch Company and Benrus Watch Company. Your watch could have been made by either as both continued to produce watches into the 70s. How about a photo of the movement?

    I just came accross your post. I have the same watch. I think I bought it in Germany in mid 1970's. Mine still runs well after 30 years.
