• 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!

I am perplexed by this watch. Not listed on eBay, nothing in google and nothing in the price guide. It is a working movement, runs strong. Does anyone have information on this pocket watch? It was found in a watchmaker‘s estate among his PW holdings. Thank you for any help or direction given.

Moving to the European section for better identification of this Swiss movement.

This may be irrelevant but I would note that if this movement measures 43 mm across the dial side then that equates to American 16-size.

American 18-size is 45 mm.

The above sizes do vary slightly but for convenience those are the equivalents commonly used.

This is very unlikely to be Hugo Boss but more probably J. Boss a US case maker and a Philadelphia Watch Case trade name.
