Hello ~ what a wonderful website! My mother just recently shared this pocket watch, amongst some others and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. It belonged to my grandmother's father from Antwerp, Belgium. I believe it to be a good 120 + years old. There are no markings on the face, it has a beautiful silver/greenish patena, gold face with silver embelishment (leafs) around the outside of the numbers and on the inside of the numbers in the middle of the watch. Only numbers I could find is the Case # B 253592 and on the mechanism, 358 and a cross. I found some more markings on the inside of the case however they are so tiny, I just can't make them out! They appear to be numbers.
If anyone can identify this beautiful pocket watch, share some history of it with me, I would be forever appreciative! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for taking a look!!
