    'Time flies but you can get 'Younger' every day' - says on the dial!

    Younger’s was an Edinburgh brewery in 1778 supplying to domestic and foreign markets. In 1931 Younger's merged with McEwan’s to form Scottish Brewers, which in turn merged with Newcastle Breweries in 1960 to form Scottish & Newcastle. The company’s UK operations were taken over by Heineken in 2008. In October 2011, Wells & Young's Brewery purchased the Younger's and McEwan's brands from Heineken UK.

    This is a Younger's promotional watch, made by a Swiss watch manufacturer, Roskopf, to commemorate the 1935 King George V Silver Jubilee year.

    Hope you enjoy this posting!

      Thanks a lot ttomtucker, BB2, Ted, tom61375, shawnicus & fortapache! Big cheers!

      It's not a Roskopf watch. Most likely it's an Ebosa or a Baumgartner.
    13. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      @ tempusfigit, althought unsigned, this watch appears to be powered by a version of the Systeme Roskopf Patent movement (typically used in the 1920s Roskopf Railroad watches). However, I could be wrong. Any further information regarding the Ebosa or Baumgartner connection will be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance. George

      Thanks very much Ashlee, shanmu, nutsabosta & agh! Much appreciated and big cheers! :-)
    15. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      @ tempusfigit, the digital watch you posted 12 months ago appears to have a very similar movement as this one here. Is the watch signed Ebosa?
    16. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Thanks very much Bernard & Mikelv! :-)
