I need any information on this Pocket Watch I think it was Swiss made around 1900, I think it was called a Regulateur Big Model, it has a lanyard on it with one star seems to have a black case or needs a good clean, it has a intresting face any information regarding it would be of great help.

    the Regulateur looks like one my father=in-law brought back from Germany after WW2.. he was German born and was drafted and returnes with the U.S. forces.. the watch in question just happened to be engraved with HIS name...

    jeepboyx9 I was doing research for a friend on that watch short history a chap in ww2 was a guard looking after German pow.s and a officer gave it to him at the end of the war could possible find out more, where are you.

    dad never talked much about his time in WW2,, about all we know,,is that he was trained Engr. and cross trained Infantry.. He was at Bastone,, all he would say was how terribly cold it was...how or when or where he acquired the watch is unknown.. it does however seem to keep perfect time even after all these years..the main differance i see between it and the one shown is this one has what looks like small red flowers arround the hands stem... i am in Washington State..

    Hi These watches I think where given to gunnery officers in ww2 so I have been told glad yours is still working sadly this one isn't , I looked up Bastogne in Belgium looks like your dad had a hard time, Look up the Siege of Bastogne on the net must have been his time there. I am in Oxford England.

    yeah telwis,,, there was noone at Bastone who did have a good time... that includes the german troops ( they got thier butts kicked ) the allies, ( they went thru hellish conditions ) or the civilians ( this was thier home,, and at the time thier home WAS hell )..any way,, i dropped the watch of yesterday to have it appraised,,don't intend to sell it,, but for insurance purposes, i thought it would be sensible to have an idea of it's value ... especially when to my wife ( it was HER father who brought it home) it is definitely irriplaceable...
