Hi and welcome to the forum. I think you'd be better off posting this in the "General Forum" and with a picture too. A picture speaks a thousand words.

Tomjoy.

Are you sure it doesn't say 6B/50 or 6E/50? I'm guessing above the 'AM' you might just see the rubbed remains of the King's Crown as well. If I'm right so far the /42 means 1942 which was when it was issued to someone in the RAF. If I remember correctly 6B would have been issued to aircrew, 6E to the rest. It is there on the internet somewhere but blowed if I know where my notes are.

Ah! Just had a reread of everything and I made the earlier assumption we were talking about a pocket watch. On the second reading I can't find anything that suggests a pocket watch in which case disregard my last, I'm probably talking Horlicks.

Might find some useful photography information here: http://www.thewatchforum.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=4626&st=0

And welcome to the forum. Hope your participation will extend to other areas.

Hooray, another member has joined the Forum fold, and as normdiaz has said, hope you have various interests, and I also hope you will be an active member.

I found the whole process of taking pictures and putting them on the Forum a nightmare at first, but one or two members of the Forum pressed me on the subject until I eventually cracked it (and nearly cracked them, and me) - and once you have mastered it, it is like riding a bicycle - you never forget it.

Sorry I can't help you with your pocket watch Tomjoy, as that is not really a specialised area of knowledge for me, but I would agree that a picture or two would be nice, and probably helpful, especially of the movement.
