    Pocket watch with a broken minute hand which then makes the hour hand not work. Very cool nonetheless.

      I like the dial and the case. Can you give the serial number on the movement (3rd photo) and we can give you some information about the watch movement itself. The photo is out of focus so I can't make out any of the markings.

      pw-collector the serial number is 4552255 and there are words that say double roller and 17 jewels. When i get the watch moving the only thing that spins is this wheel with some cylinders on it and the second hand and a copper looking gear right next to the minute hand.

      Thanks for all that info i had no idea they had specific databases for pocket watches.

      Looks like a good one to maybe get fixed for daily use, if you want to put money into it. 17 jewels is good.
