I have been wanting to post this since the day I found it waiting for me in a store in Hillsboro, Ohio. I have always loved old pocket watches and even owned a few vintage ones. But never have I had the pleasure of one this nice before now. This is a 17 jewel movement, I have figured out. The parts that are confusing to me are all the numbers engraved in the case. I could not capture them with my camera but can see them very easily with my loupe. There are even roman numerals engraved in the frame around the crystal. I believe this is 14kt gold filled with a 12kt gold filled chain by Kremeniz. I am not sure what date this watch was made but guessing 1920-40s'? I would love to know what all these numbers are for. Please comment below. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I have learned a few more facts since posting this a few days ago. This watch was produced in 1918. Its whats called a 910series in PW lingo, and is a size 12s. It still keeps time perfectly as long as I remember to wind it up. It is not something practical to wear for keeping time, but Oh, time never looked so good! :-)
Thanks to the link from Toolate and others that gave information I now know that this watch was made in 1918 and it is a size 12s. I also learned that it has been serviced several times by the amount of different numbers engraved on the case. Whoever owned this watch had it worked on 6-7 times.
