    Is this a Patek?

    Yeah, I noticed that too. Both mine and Ethan's say 'SWITZLRLAND' and not Switzerland. Wonder why it's an L and not an E?

    Is this a Patek?

    During the service, the watchmaker took a picture of the movement behind the dial. I looked at it briefly and don't think I saw anything. I asked him to send the picture to me. Still waiting on it. He also found an Agassiz movement very similar to mine. Still waiting on a link for that too.

    Is this a Patek?

    Thank you for letting me know about the micrometer screw. I just got it serviced, and it doesn't look like they replaced it.

    Is this a Patek?

    I'm actually leaning towards it being Agassiz. My intention of the post was to verify it's not a Patek without having to pay a ridiculous amount of money.

    Is this a Patek?

    I did, and I do appreciate it. I was just hoping to check Patek off the list without having to pay them $400 to go into their archives.

    Is this a Patek?

    Hi all, I've been on the hunt for an ID of this movement for a while now. I've contacted Vacheron & Constantin, Blancpain, Longines, Audemars Piguet, and they all said it wasn't theirs. Jaeger LeCoultre said it probably isn't theirs but can't be sure without looking through the archives (which...

    I found a very similar movement to ours here (just flipped) that's an Agassiz: https://watchflair.de/en/startseite/75-a-rare-agassiz-14k-gold-gent-s-pocket-watch-with-central-seconds-with-a-fine-agassiz-wooden-box-.html movement number is 106272

    I just watched a video of how to take off the dial and I was like "Yeah, I don't feel comfortable doing this"

    How do you look under the dial? If I only have to unscrew a few screws without taking apart the movement, I'll do it, but I'm no expert in pocket watches and don't really want to mess with the movement.

    Could you tell me a little more about Agassiz? I'd never heard of them until Ethan mentioned them.

    Swiss Pocket Watch Identification

    After searching LeCoultre ebauche, I found this thread https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/is-this-a-lecoultre-ebauche.171089/ with a picture very similar to my watch's movement, but the regulator is different.

    Swiss Pocket Watch Identification

    Hello, I've been passed down a Swiss pocket watch that doesn't say who made the movement. I've been told that it was probably made around 1900 give or take a decade. The movement serial number is 97996 and the case serial number is 484981 that is probably an H. Muhr's Sons case Crown edition...
