  1. Guys this is fantastic thank you so much As spinynorman suggests its a possibility the watch was made by the Dawes family. Thanks"Always watching for your research into the case, that's so funny because my cousin and myself were always told it was my G G Grandfathers initials William Fenn. It's been great learning a bit more about the watch which is now in lovely working condition and will be passed down to future members of my family. Mike
  2. Picture of hallmarks on the case. The initials in the centre (upside down ) I suspect are my G G Grandfather's W F https://www.dropbox.com/s/epcjutbx4mz1ert/IMGP1527.jpeg?dl=0
  3. Thanks everyone for your interest. I'm unable to find any makers mark on the case. The hallmarks are very very faint I guess to much polish in the past, will try to get a picture of the marks that are there and post them up. Mike
  4. Thanks Spinynorman This all looks very interesting and possible the maker, may I ask where you found the James Dawes ? can't find him on the 1841 census William Dawes is shown as a watchmaker and as you say possible relation. Thanks again, Mike
  5. Thanks for your interesting reply, I could be mistaken trying to identify the signature. Will try to add a link to photos for any ones opinion. Not knowing much about this subject is it possible that jewellers would sign the movement and not always the watchmaker Thanks, Mike https://www.dropbox.com/s/xeavck4s6ey7s0a/20200719_124424.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/8adgqjqr36w3it0/DSCF2781-2.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/9lm3a2gn01s2d4v/DSCF2792.jpg?dl=0
  6. Hi newbie here to your forum and I hope I’m in the correct place. I am trying to find any info/history about my great great grandfathers pocket watch. The watch has recently been restored and is in lovely condition. The silver case is hallmarked and although the hallmarks are difficult to make out I am pretty certain that it is London silver 1824. The watch it self has a verge movement and is signed H Dawes London with a number 7074. I have hunted around the internet but can find no reference anywhere to an H Dawes watchmaker, any help would be much appreciated . Thanks, Mike
