I can’t sleep, so I shined up my Westclox. Can someone help date it for me?

I have owned this Westclox watch for years, but don’t remember when and how I got it.

It’s as if I was abducted by 3-foot Grays, thoroughly probed…and then dropped hazy-brained in the middle of a pasture…holding the watch in my hand.

I know I’ve had it for years, so It’s got some age to it. I’ve researched it a bit on-line…to no avail. Maybe one of you can shed some light?

Idk about aliens, but that non recollection might mean you're going to need that watch when you get to a hidden chamber.

Pocket watches are unexplored territory for me. This site has a searchable database for Westclox.

I don't think that I have ever seen a Swiss movement in a Westclox.

I took the back off mine and looked at the movement. Based on the writing and the internet, I was able to date it to shotgun a couple years. It’s a different brand, but there’s probably a site that will help you out.

Love the breguet hands and numerals!

Westclox wristwatches were (apparently) Swiss made until the late 60s, then moved over to France and Germany

I think that the pocket watch movements were made in Illinois, or at least mine was. This is from 1923-27. I have to get the sub-second re-attached.

The https://pocketwatchdatabase.com/ has a lookup tool by serial numbers and does have a section for the Western Clock Manufacturing Manufacturing Co. aka Westclox

I used the site to date a couple of pocket watches, like this one to circa 1912. You'd have to crack open the watch to find the serial number, most likely, but you also get to gander at the movement which to me is the best part of pocket watches.

It’s an interesting one.
