    Hi Maurice and welcome to the NAWCC forum!

    I moved your post and created a new thread to get more exposure.

    I don't have the answer to your question but I'm sure someone will
    post a response shortly.

    Hi Maurice, there is no nice way to tell you, it is not a true Tobias Liverpool product. The truth is, this watch was made in Switzerland, and though it is one of the better fakes, it is still just that. I hope you did not pay to much for it and can enjoy the watch for what it is, a nice antique Swiss pocket watch, it would have been made around 1850. (Nice American case)

    Allan.

    Hi Maurice,

    Afraid not, it's unmistakably Swiss, and you may have noticed it's signed M S Tobias on the cuvette.

    Regards,

    Graham

    Thanks so much! I didn’t buy it yet. I offered to pay $600 for it and the seller agreed. It’s 10k gold.
