Author Topic: Swiss Pocket Watch - Need some info, please!  (Read 879 times)

I have a pocket watch and it has no watchmaker's identification marking that I can find.
It has a 3 hinge construction 
On the very inside rear cover it is stamped "H 58"  somewhat randomly placed at the top and SWITZERLAND down close to the hinge and below that a serial number 3064150
On the inside of the outside rear cover the serial number is stamped again down close to the hinge and also an "H 58" placed at the top.
The internal works are marked SWISS, but no other identification markings - it is quite decorative inside, though.
On the outside of the main body down close to the hinge area ther is a "58"
There are no wording/markings on the face, except an "8 DAYS"

I don't know watch sizes but the outside diameter is 2.8 inches or 71 mm and it is .92 inches or 23 mm thick
It is a heavy watch I guess about 1 lb.
It is missing the second hand on the lower 0 to 60 dial, and it is not running.



Here are some pics...can anyone help me out here.

Thanks,
Jack
