    This Swiss made, unsigned pocket watch is fully working and in reasonable condition.

     
    The front of the watch is completely open with a plexi glass or perspex clear front. This allows the time to be seen in full view, and unobstructed. The numbers are initially in Roman numerals although there is a subsidiary outer circle giving 5 minute sections. The hands appear to be in excellent order, and are fine and ornate in there design. There is a seconds counter at the 6 o'clock position, in which again is fully working.
     
    There is some slight damage to the front of the watch face, which can be noted by the naked eye. There is a crack that runs from the 12 o'clock position almost to the 2 o'clock area. No other damage can be seen even under magnification. The front cover is hinged and opens well.
     
    The rear cover of the watch is plain and it does not appear that there has been any previous inscription. Again this section is hinged and there does not appear to be any damage to the working of this hinge. Inside the rear cover, are some markings and a dust cover for the mechanical workings.
    The marks that are stamped are as follows. A shield type image with the markings of HHH and 0.800 are first seen. This donates that the piece is made from 0.800 grade silver. There is a slightly rubbed image if a Grouse. This states that this piece was made between 1893 and 1934.The final symbol on this cover is a crescent moon and a crown. It is not clear what these are there to represent. The case is stamped 37919. Some small areas of discoloration are evident although this does not affect the watch in any way.
     
    The dust cover is plain and again it does not appear to have had any previous inscriptions placed upon it. Although the dust cover is a good fit, the appropriate tool will release it from its setting and allow it to hinge back. All the previous markings are found as was earlier described. The internal workings of the watch appear to be in a reasonable order and relatively clean. There is no makers mark or inscription upon the workings that can be seen.
     
    The crown is fully operational although there is a slight sideways movement to its feel. The loop is in excellent condition. When looking at the face of the watch, slightly to the right hand side, is a small button. This needs to be depressed when the time is required to be altered. This also works as it should.
     
    A nice period watch that does have some damage, although an ideal starter for any Pocket Watch collection.
