This watch came to me reputed to be a Scottish Station Master's watch. It is big, 67mm in diameter (ex crown), 21mm thick. The movement is a 15 jewel lever escapement, stem wind, pin set, unsigned. Can anyone help by identifying the movement and dating it. Thank you in advance.
Yes, I also thought it was Swiss but I could find nothing in the Roland Ranfft data base. The closest I came to it was the Revue 19 and (never heard of before) Bona 19. All the plates, bridges and screws look the same but configured differently. I found an image of an almost identical watch on the Science Museum Group site. That watch was from a railway company that started in 1923. This seems a little late for a watch like this that has pin set. When did pin set become obsolete?
