    This is one of the classic Swiss "fakes", in that most of the jewels you see are not functional - it may even have only 7 functional jewels. Even the case is engraved or stamped first and was then plated - long since worn off.

    Vandd - The maker of your watch (Langendorf) is listed (as is the trademark TransPacific) in Swiss Timepiece Makers 1775 - 1975 by Kathleen Pritchard (4 pages of information which you may find interesting). Enjoy. Mike

    This is an Langendorf 495 line 19 Swiss pocket watch.
    I own one and have been looking for the setting gears and plate
