I have this old gold pocketwatch that used to belong to my grandmother. Despite showing the Colibri trademark on the dial I guess it cannot be from Colibri of London since it has written "Liege 1905 Hors Concours" on the back and it shows the Swiss squirrel hallmark for 14k gold.
According to mikrolisk.de site, the Colibri trademark could have been used back in 1905 by either Aeby & Landry, A. Schweizer-Schatzmann or W. Hippenmeyer / Orbag.
On the other hand if shows CF inside an elipse on the mechanism pointing I believe to L. Courvoisier & Cie., successeur de Courvoisier Freres

Does anyone have additional information on what watch this really is? I would really appreciate it. Thanks

Pedro

I'd say that (i) it looks like a rather nice, although technically a little primitive (cylindre escapement), pendant watch from around 1900 and (ii) you've got it already! The movement is by L. Courvoisier & Cie. of La-Chaux-de-Fonds (CF in an oval) and "Colibri" was one of their trade marks.
