This was in a group of recently purchased watches. Info from the the guide dates it to 1904-05? No jewel count on movement. Small hallmark inside case looks to be a bird of some sort. Silver? Case serial number matches movement.

Any help with ID appreciated.

If that is around a 16 Size (19 Lignes) it is possibly a 19.75N Caliber.

Thank you for the replies. I have found that the case is 80% silver and the age should be 1904. I have done many searches for Swiss movements with no success on details as to jewel count or value. I have seen several pictures of similar watches and movements without being able to get details.

Any ideas of value?

That date does not sound too far out Mike, that caliber was made around 1902 and I think from memory 7, 9, 11 & 15 Jewel flavorsSmile

As for price, best to do a search for completed listings on the big auction site, that will give you a better idea on value. I have seen them go at different times between $75-$200US, but much more on the lower side of that equation.

More often then not they are usual passed in and not sold so go around again & again. I am afraid to say they can be a hard watch to move, and to my knowledge plenty were produced and are not a flashy Caliber, so that might explain it.
