    what do you think about it, the case and the movement belong to each other?

    Hi John! Yes, the silver marks showed, that maded in London. And the f letter dated this to year 1841. The watch hurry about 2-3 mintutes per hour, because the balance has very small swing angle.

    what do you think about it, the case and the movement belong to each other?

    Last week i bought an english silver pocket watch, and today arrived to me. Several questions arose in my mind. I expected it would to be verge fusee, but to my surprise it has an english lever! I'm not an expert in the english pocket watches, but how common is the english lever in such a...

    Would this be a "broad arrow" mark on this pocket watch movement?

    Today i tried to make a better macro photo from this marking. You may be right, in the higher resolution image can see, that the marking does not consist of dots, but the broad arrow was hatched. Only because of the polishing it looks like it is drawn from tiny dots. I searched on internet...

    Would this be a "broad arrow" mark on this pocket watch movement?

    If anyone had polished this plate, then had dismantled the watch completely apart, because the blueing on the screw heads is not worn off. And if I look more closely, the inner half of this plate is also mirror-polished...

Does anyone know, when this marking was used on...

    Hi Graham and Seth! Thank you very much for your answers! Seth you are maybe right with the 3th switch, because the switch moves an arm toward the pendant. One more question: the marked broken chain where should be connected? I will show the other interesting things soon;-) Regards! Peter

    Information need from H A Favre watchmaker

    Many thanks to everyone who found new information for me about this watch! " I read "19 [lignes] Savonet..." Strange that it is a Lepine. Is it 19L?" It may be weird, but probably only because it got in a new case in the meantime. If you look at the other chronometer, that I showed, it is in a...
