    European?

    I hope someone can shed some light on this watch for me. It has a 9c gold case although I have a feeling that beneath the gold is copper, not exactly gold plated but gold covered. It tests for gold all over but the inner back plate is inscribed 'cuivre' with the number 31637 below it. The...

    any idea because i haven't

    I came across this movement and as soon as i wound it up it started and hasn't stopped since, regardless of what you do with it so there is nothing wrong with it. On the back is the number 438305 but around the edge is a metal band with ELEY'S PAT SEP 21/69 inscribed on it. I have never seen...

    fake or not

    I have just got this pocket watch. On the inside cover it has Aubert & Klaftenberger, 157 Regent st. 26369. The only other markings on it SCM, 3 small circles and again the number 26369. There are no other markings on the case or the movement.

    unknown maker

    Hi Graham with the little bit of information you have given me you have opened my eyes to things i didn't know. If its not too much trouble where could i find makers marks because i have a very similar watch assayed in London in 1904 but also has what i assume is the makers mark A.L.D. in a...

    unknown maker

    Yes it does have a diamond and although most has been rubbed out i can make out the letter R. Thanks for the help. Forgive me for asking but you mentioned the cap, do you mean the metal cover that goes over the movement? If so yes i do still have it i simply took it off for the photo. Now...

    well its still a mystery because this is the reply i got from the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Chronometrie: ERAEF is really a mysterious name (if it is at all a name of a person or a company). After a detailled recherche in all our sources I am sorry to tell you that I cannot solve your issue...
