We have an old pocket watch at home that belongs to my great grandfather (+1900 1970).
My dad thinks he probably bought arround 1930 but it could always be a gift or something.
It has the name H.C.T. on the dial and on the back there are french lilies. I googled the name but I didn't find anything.
To set the time you have to push a little button on the side. He lived in Belgium if that's any help.








On the last picture you can't see the H.C.T on the dial because of the flash.

The posts in the Links and articles section of the form have a 'how to open your case' thread. A picture of the movement would help a lot.

If you can turn off the flash, you can get better pictures.

I have not the skills or the tools to open it. Besides it still works.
There is a little "door" on the back with the french lilies. I always tought that little "door" protected the glass.
For what reason is the little "door" there?
The name of my great grandfather is on the real back off the watch and on the back of the little door.
There are some other stamps on it but I can't read them fully.
