Services Pocket Watch query

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am relatively new to the world of watches and have acquired a Services pocket watch which seems to be the same as that in the picture but with the late 50's to early 70's Services brand logo on the dial. It has a Wotania 1 jewel unadjusted movement.

The gold finish is thin and worn off.

Can anyone tell me anything about this watch and what the gold finish was? I think it may have been a 'contract watch’ badge engineered for Services.

Thanks in advance

Services was a Company name who made cheap watches etc. I think they were based in Leicester if memory serves right. The colour if gold plated would usually be marked inside the back ( some day guaranteed for ten years etc) , or any precious metal. There are better experts as still learning myself. Could you provide a picture of the back cover inside and movement?
