Hi,

I have been given an old Moeris pocket watch that i suspect is around the 20's in age and am hoping someone on here happens to know a little more about it.
I have noticed these moeris pocket watches seem to be somewhat common in Australia which is where i am located.

The details i can find on the watch are as follows
On the inside of the back plate there are two stamps, one says "Metal Extra Blanc Garanti" and the other is the number 2391323
Stamped on the movement is 19a which i suspect is the type of movement, swiss made, non magnetic and what seems to be a little lever to switch from F or A to S or R

Any info would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Hi Jacobs,
very polite to make this lady a fewyears younger but I guess she is around 1900/15 . In Roland Ranffts database you can found a simpler stoneless pin lever variation around 1905. bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Moeris 19'''A . The style of the watch is also quite tyical for the aera of a useable watch. Good readable in half-light. In this aera the streets wasn't brightly lit :).

Kind regards Silke
