I am no expert on them thank you . It’s a Dayton Watch co
That would be my opinion. Swiss Fake
Swiss, imitation american pocket watch is my opinion as well. Cool name on this one. Does it run??
Is it my imagination or does that balance cock look out of place on this watch?
Needs serviced but runs
Better picture thanks guys
I should say it tries to run
I did go to your Sound Click website.
Thanks Rob I love to write and play music
How do I hear your music rob
Why don't you guys do this in Private Conversations, it used to be Private Messages ?
Looks like a Swiss fake to me. I see what richiec is talking about. The balance cock doesn't quite exactly mate to the barrel cover but it works.
Thanks jim will do now that I understand and thank you for the info guys
Looks to me like the Swiss fake 1857, but trying to look like something other than an 1857.
It's a lower grade Swiss fake, to me the balance cock looks fine. A Swiss fake, but these can be interesting as well - part of watchmaking history in America
Part of watch making history in Switzerland, but wound up in America.
Yup, it's definitely trying its hardest to look like a Waltham, therefore it's most likely to be a fake.
Did it come with the case that it's in, if so what sort of case is it?
Came with the case
Dano, I think he's asking what kind of case is it? This one was made by the
Theiry Watch Case Co.
Mine case just reads silveroid 822 it’s a cool watch I think I will have it fixed as it’s part of Watch history anyway
Needs service to keep time
Does anyone know who made this case?
Hey dano, I have a few cases marked silveride, I have yet to nail down the manufacturer, I would love to know as well. For being nickel cases, they are very solid and well built. I have a kw hunter, keywind Openface, and stemwind hunter, and I like them very much.
There is one thread here, I cant find right now, where someone mentions that max freund and co made silveride, but have never been able to confirm it.
I have also seen coin cases with the same diamond with a 3 in it to mark weight, and instead of silveride it says coin silver, same font, decoration and everything, so I believe whoever made these had different varieties of cases.
Ok sir found the post about max freund and silveride
It was Russ Snyder that made that comment, so I would definitely lean towards it being correct!
