    Default Help Identify old K&L Swiss Pocket watch

    Hello, I am hoping to find someone who may know anything about this watch. Age? Type? Value?
    I have done lots of research but keep coming up with nothing. It has been in a box with lots of old stuff, some WWll items, so it must be quite old.
    There is a Lion logo and "935". Also "376663" is engraved in the gold mechanical side.
    Not sure if it is a pocket watch, the way the tiny clock face sticks out might be awkward.
    Could those be emeralds around the face?
    Greatly appreciate any info you could offer.
    Does anybody collect these?

    Look up a company called "Kordes & Lichtenfels" based in Pforzheim, Germany. K&L has been around since the mid 1880's but over the last 80 yrs have morphed into a jewellery producer. They use the "K & L" mark and I've seen one of their antique pocket watches before but unfortunately there is very little demand for their products. That .935 is sterling silver and that's actually a 'standing bear' hallmark that was used in Switzerland & Germany. I doubt that those are actual emeralds but who knows until they are tested. This one might garner a little bit of interest due to its oddity.
