Hi folks, log time lurker, first time poster here. I have an c1890's 14k, full hunter, minute repeater pocket watch that I am hoping all you watch Jedi out there can help me with as my own efforts to get information on it have proved less than fruitful! I know it's from Schwab Frere Cie of Switzerland but that's about it really; that's written om the face so I don't have to be Poirot to figure that one! I know nothing about movement, style, jewels, production numbers, value or if it a watch of note. What I do know is that my Father bought it in Peking in '63. The story goes that the Chinese Emperor bought a job lot of them in the late 19th century and would gift them to loyal staff as a thankyou, but that's it... It lives in my drawer, has done for decades. It used to come out when I wore a suit-prior to retirement-and occasionally when I wore the full highland kilted evening wear, but that all seems to have shrunk in the last few years so it doesn't get the use it once did. I have attached a few piccies for you to have a wee look at, apologies if they are not the best, I am no David Bailey. So, here's the challenge...enlighten me!
