I recently purchased this pocket watch and would like to find out some more about its origin age etc. I have tried looking on various sites but have had no joy in recognising
The watch is working and keeping great time. The face as you see is a cream/off white with bold numerals and "Non magnetic Lever" and "Made in Wurttemberg stamped on the face. It ticks as loud as a clock in a rather old fashioned way. The back once opened reveals an engraved panel and again "German make" stamped. There are initials TH or HT on either side of the word "BRAVO". I would love to know if this is genuine watch or a copy or any information about the maker.

    Interesting timepiece. Sorry I know "nadda" about this particular one, but sure that one of the others will have some insight. tempusfugit will possibly know something, These fall into European made timepiece. Thanks for sharing this, will be watching for future info.

    This is a German watch made by the Thomas Haller company.
    Thomas Haller joined with the famous Junghans company and the Bravo brand was registered on March, 29 in 1905.
    The movement is a Haller movement. Haller was famous for it's cheap but good timekeeping movements.

    The company Junghas & Haller didn't last long and Haller founded his own company again and called it Thomas Ernst Haller.

    Your watch has the name Bravo on it so it must be from the Junghans & Haller era around 1905-1910.
    Although it was a cheap watch, this one looks great.
    Thanks for showing it here.
