• 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!

How do I Identify a pocket watch?

Opening the back dust cover so you can see the movement is the way to go. Note all markings, makers name if it appears, and most importantly - the serial number.

Hi,

Cool...sounds like aneat watch...
I love guesing games. Most of these that I have seen, marked in this manner, are rather inexpesive versions.

Is it a slide or push button repeater?

Minute register?

14k or 18k?

My guess? 14k, push button repeat, thin case, no minute register.

Pics!! Jeff Hess

18k or 14k?

Just to clarify

A slide repeater operates by "sliding" the button on teh side while a push repeater has the buttoin pressed directly into the watch.

If a push button repeater it may be a La Phare.
If a slide repeater there are more viable candidates.

Shugart has some examples.
