    Does anyone recognize these hallmarks? I'm trying to ID this watch and it almost appears middle eastern but I can't find the hallmarks anywhere.

    Yes, Orosdi-Back.

    Mikrolisk records this mark as being registered to Etablissements Orosdi-Back (La Chaux-de-Fonds) on 13th May 1898.

    Thanks guys. How late did they keep making key wind watches? I didn't expect to find a key wind watch as late as 1898.

    George Daniels made some of his in the 1970's but very few were made after about 1890.
