Hi all I've been searching for the last couple of days for some info on my great grandfathers pocket watch it was given to him in 1900 for 25 year service so its quite old only there aren't any manufactures names.[URL="http://<a href="http://s1017.photobucket.com/user/chrisbarnes27/media/pocket2_zpsfdcb50e0.jpg.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">

Welcome to the forum. Can you tell us what it says on the movement in the cross shape?

Just zoomed in on image and in the cross are the letters PROT and it looks like the letters CUIVAL inside the case..
I wondered, but my zoom was blurry. So that makes the second Schild Freres watch on the forum today!

PROT (im Kreuz)
Schild Fréres & Co. / Eterna SA Grenchen, Schweiz; später nannte sich die Firma "Eterna"

Thanks that was fast. It doesnt currently work properly, when I say properly I mean its abit sluggish could do with a good service new glass and seconds hand. Also I've been looking round and alot of the seria numbers are in the millions roughly1912 mine is922384 would this make it earlier given the date 1900? Also any idea where or if I can get any information on the s/n? Thanks

If you go to the Schild-Eterna site

Triple Time

and scroll to the bottom where they have the serial numbers listed then you will see that they list 1900 as 1,045,000 which would place yours just earlier than that - which would tie in nicely with it being engraved say a year after being made.

I would say get it serviced if you can find someone to do it, and don't attempt to run it until then.

Thanks for all the help, but just a bit more if you could, How do i remove the stem? I can't see any screw to release it.

You don't?! I do - it is the smaller one of the two screws to the upper left of the crown wheel (with the watch held crown up). You don't need to unscrew it totally, just enough to release the stem. It also helps putting it back if you pull out the stem in the setting position before you release the screw.....
