    I was very pleased to find this among the other watches spread out on the table. I recognized the Squirrel mark and knew it was Swiss. Haven't figured out the rest of the marks yet. The watch face has been reworked by hand, so might explain the lack of a name. I opened the case - it's hinged on one side - and took out the workings. There are four jewels but no name. There are some numbers hand etched on the inside of the case but it's not really possible to get a photo of any of it.

    Can the CW watch people fill me in?

    Thanks!

      @Thomas - In the morning, I'm on my way to the Dutch version of Antiques Roadshow - Tussen Kunst en Kitsch (Between Art and Shoddy) in the Cube Design Museum in Kerkrade. This watch is one of the things I'm taking with me.

      Well, I didn't find out much!! Had to tell the expert that the watch case was made in Switzerland...!!!...didn't expect to learn much more after that, and I was right. So, since it's broken I will just scrap the 14K gold case.

      Really Bonnie!!! I thought you were going to tell us heaps of good things that the experts had said about your things!!!
      How disappointing for you!!! I am quite sure you and others here on Cw know more than some of these "experts"!!

      Judy, the "jewelry expert" was even more disappointing. One of the items I brought was that thrift shop find ivory bangle I posted awhile ago. Art Deco design. She told it me was post-1947 but didn't tell me HOW she came to that conclusion. She told me my gorgeous multi-crystal and sterling pendant, complete with silver marks, was KITSCH. Excuse me??? Grrrrrr......

      Kyra knows more than that "expert"!!!

      This would have made me really GRRRRR!!! Makes you think that the antiques roadshow that is on television must surely be all rehearsed and staged!!!
      Yes Kyra certainly does!!!

      I think anyone who touts themselves as an expert rarely are one in my experience.
      I like that watch, it is probably around the mid-1920's in date.
      The swan logo is used by the Record Watch company (I have a couple of Record watches) of Switzerland, if you look inside it may have a small swan mark on the winding wheel, or a circle with a large letter "T" with smaller "RW" above it inside the circle. This is usually located in the balance wheel well under the balance (the sprung wheel that rotates back and forth)wheel.

      The dial looks re-finished to me.

      Shame to scrap. :-(
