• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Hello,
I picked up this pocket watch, because I liked the movement (very clean & different).
I think it is French?
Can't find anything on a movement with a D (fleur de lis) S on line.
Anyone know the maker, country it is from, and about the year it was made?
Thank You for any information that anyone can provide.
Tim

That's right it's French, built by Japy Freres of Beaucourt France. A short story about Japy Freres.
Regards enrico
Enrico,
Thank You for that information!
I looked and Japy Freres makers marks don't look like the one I have.
I've attached what I found.
Any idea on about when it was made?
Thank You,

The DS with fleur-de-lis is the 14th illustration shown on the list enrico linked. That is the logo on your watch.
