Hello I recently acquired this lovely little pocket watch at an estate sale. It caught my eye and I had to have it! Now I would like to learn more about it if possible.
Any input would be most appreciated.
Welcome to Watchuseek. You have a lady's pendant watch (usually worn from a long, thin chain around the neck) from ca. 1900 give or take a bit. It is pin set - to set the time, you wind the crown while simultaneously pushing in the pin on the case next to the winding stem. It has a low to moderate quality cylindre escapement with what looks like 10 jewels in the movement to minimise friction, the maximum for a watch of that type.
If you are planning to use this - very pretty - watch it will need a service. Running it without could cause it damage as the oils will, most likely, be dried up by now. The regulator is pushed way over to the left - a sign that attention is needed.
