Hey!

ANY information you could provide on this pocketwatch would be great, I don't even know anything about the brand! My dad gave it to me a while back and i've only recently found it again. It doesn't work and just seems to wind the time round. Any idea of how much something like this would be worth too?

Cheers guys, Simon.

There was an old thread here in 2010 and I took this statement as a first indication:

'There's not a lot to be found about Liga. "The FABRIQUE D'HORLOGERIE LIGA S.A established in Solothurn in Switzerland produced watches in the 50's under the brands LIGA, ARTA, RENOVA, REVIDA, SOLORA, and STADION.'

On watch-wiki (German language page) you basically find the above info.

Under the link 'Bildgallerie Uhrenmodelle' (Picture Gallery watch models) you find a picture of your watch.

I am not certain if "in-house" is a possibility here- the Liga 315 and the one in OP's watch look like Roskopf patent movements, and AFAIK these were made in large quantities by SHR (Reconvilier). The plate over the winding gears also matches with some of these SHR movements.
Here's a Reconvilier movement with a similar feature:

Now, I'm not saying that it's a match- it definitely isn't, but I think it has some relation to the OP's movement. I'm guessing that relation is the same manufacturer, but then again I do admit that it's a long shot.
