Good afternoon all,
I have recently inherited my grandfathers pocket watches however my knowledge of watches is very limited, I would really appreciate any information you guys might have. There are two:
"West end Watch Co" stamped on the back with 'The A1 Regulator' Swiss made, with a picture of a stream train. The watch has been personally inscribed with my grandfathers initials and is dated 11-07-1945. Serial number 831097. I'm new to this forum and I haven't worked out how to upload photos but the link below takes you to same watch. http://jamqistina.blogspot.com/2012/01/a1-regulator-west-end-watch-co-rm350.html
"Oris" Anti-shock. This is not inscribed. It has a chrome case and numbers on its face, not Roman Numerals. I found this link: https://www.google.co.uk/search?safe=active&biw=1745&bih=875&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=srWoXMnOJfTggwfvpb6gBA&q=oris+anti+shock+pocket+watch&oq=Oris+Anti&gs_l=img.1.2.0l3j0i30l2j0i5i30l5.5329.12894..15646...0.0..0.92.1149.19......1....1..gws-wiz-img.......0i67j0i7i30j0i8i7i30j0i10i24j0i8i30.lr5p_Rgd1YM&safe=active#imgrc=R7DBpOG6mW__wM:&spf=1554561041459. On the back it has what I can find on the internet 'Vine Oris Pockech Art Deco Design In Tipperary Town'
Apologies for the links, if anybody can advise how to upload the photos that would be great.
As I say I would really appreciate any information on these watches, age, quality etc.
Many thanks for your help
