A friend shared his Grandfather’s Crown Watch Company pocket watch looking for info. I tried to research it but didn’t have much luck.

Any info or suggestions on where to look would be appreciated.

I’ll try to attach pictures. Let me know if you need additional info.

Thanks
Peter

Speculation but I suspect this is product of the Philadelphia watch case company. Theur trademark is crown and they were listed in Neibling's book on watch case makers as an importer of Swiss watches.

The movement looks like a low end Madrasch movement, but this too is a guess. Gruen import4ed better grade Madrash movements.

Thanks Dr Jon! I’m seeing my friend tomorrow and will share the info, tactfully and with caveats.
Thanks again!
