    Hello!

    I have had this 19th century Danish double-wheel duplex from Copenhagen in my collection for a while now without being able to find any information about the maker/retailer. In my search i have found several very similar watches by Urban and Frederik Jürgensen.

    The case is marked "M.ALSTRUP", the name matches an early Danish photographer born in 1808 who trained as a goldsmith early in his life but this might be a coincidence.
    Information about the Danish watchmaking industry in this era has proven illusive so any input will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards Erik

    E. Höeg was the watchmaker or dealer, and Kiöbenhavn or Kjöbenhavn were the old spellings for Copenhagen. So your search should start in Denmark. Hope this helps. Allan
