    I am a 20 year collector of American Pocket Watches, and recently found what I believe is a European Watch due to the movement style, but have no idea who made it. It’s a full hunter, key wind movement with only the Star of David engraved on it. Does anyone have any information on this watch? Manufacturer and possibly a date? I picked it up at an estate sale for a price I couldn’t say no to. It sets, winds, and runs good, and gained 8 minutes from n 24 hours.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Hi, it could be:
    Moritz Kohn who was a watch dealer in Berlin at the end of the nineteenth century; he had a K in a Star of David; I can't make out what is in the Star on your Pocket Watch. The movement is a Swiss Cylinder movement. Regards Ray

    Thanks for the reply, Omexa! I couldn’t see a K or anything for that matter inside the star. I haven’t had a chance to look at it under a loupe yet, but after enlarging the picture of the star (attached) it’s possible there is.
