I have a Postala pocket watch and I believe it goes back to the turn of the century or no later than the 10's or 20's.

There are no markings on the face and the only markings in side on the movement are Postala Watch Co, I think it also said 18 jewells.

On the inside of the cover it has some symbol of a Crown? with a Arrow? going through it. It also states like 14K.

4 pictures attached

Any help will be greatly appericated.


Thanks

Scott

You should add a photo or two of the inside cover markings.

The Postala name has been registered a few different times, all by different Swiss makers in Tramelan-Dessus, between 1893 and 1933. I would agree this is probably from the 1910-1935 period.

As to your description I would suggest the crown being an apple.
Apple, pierced by an arrow was the trademark of FHF (Fabrique d`Horlogerie Fontainemelon), probably in remembrance of Wilhelm Tell.
