  1. Thanks for the advice, I don't think I'll be doing any cleaning, I'll keep it's character as is. I have a small issue of a possible overwind to deal with so I'm constantly doing a gentle twist to try to get it "back to normal"
  2. I managed to open the case, as there was a small latch under 6:00, I've uploaded a photo, fyi, it looks almost identical to the watch in the above video. Unfortunately the photo is not great quality as I took it with my phone: https://s20.postimg.org/rfw3bsopp/DSC_0025.jpg What is the best way to clean the watch face? as it's a little grubby. Many thanks.
  3. Thanks for the swift response, here are a couple of photos of the front of the watch. https://postimg.org/gallery/1zfgzy9ru/ Many thanks.
  4. Hi, I'm new to the forum, and would like some help to identify a pocket watch which belonged to my Great Grandfather. The watch is Silver, hallmarked London (Lion with Panther Head) 1871, there is a case maker stamp which is W.T.R, My first question is who is W.T.R? The watch winds with a key by opening the back section of the case. There is a glass front, although the glass has been replaced by perspex (plastic?), the watch face has raised decoration which is gold coloured (gilding?) unfortunately I cant open the watch center to get to the inner workings, it looks as though there is an indentation when the watch face cover is open. If required I could take photographs.
