Pocket Watch maker mark?

Recommended Posts

Got a Pocket watch with M&W on the Movement. Any ideas on who it is? or what it stands for. No makers name on dial just a number.

As Roddy says here above, pictures of the watch and the movement might help us. I have had an initial perusal at likely sources on information but have come up blank as to the M & W mark on the movement of your watch. I had a brief flirtation with Mappin & Webb but it seems that although they did mark some pocket watch movements, the name was engraved in full on all the examples I have viewed online.

This is old "Tobias" type key wind movement. Thow it is quality made, it is probably old manufacture type, where on one street of the willage they cut the wheels, on another - pinions, ont third - they asssembled wheels and so... Almost hand made.  Parts of one movement never fit to another... Probably will never understand who made it.

Unless I'm going cross-eyed, it says "W&M" in the first picture, not "M&W".

Mikrolisk lists W&M as the trademark of Uhrenfabrik Wulf & Metzler, Tisch- und Wanduhren; Berlin, Deutschland; um 1893/1900.

That would make sense.
