My Grandfather's pocket watch

It needs new hands. The hour hand is out of alignment. Also could do with a new glass, the current one is some type of plastic. Can't imagine that it is an original one, sometime in the past various numbers we're etched into it, also a year, 1933

Just make out the date on the left side, hmm, on closer inspection, it might not be a date.

Medana was the sister brand of Roamer from about 1909 until 1945. Roamer tended to get the better movements (lever escapement) and Medana got the pin pallet escapements. The scratch marks are from a watch maker who serviced the watch.

A picture of the movement may show a better movement than I described. You have silver hallmarks that will tell you about the case.

There are lots of sites devoted to pocket watches.

Thank you, interesting to know.

Aha, it is key wound. This is odd, as those were supposedly obsolete by the mid 1800s. 

The hand alignment and crystal issue may be related, as I immediately had a problem when I had a dormant keywound pocket watch serviced. They informed me that the new crystal was very thin and flexible (this was a hunter case, unlike yours) and that touching the crystal at all risked pushing it into the spindly little hands. I was instructed on how to hold it only by the edge when setting or winding.

I'm guessing that the seconds hand is damaged too? Couldn't tell you much about the movement, but you already know more than I do about mine.

Ordered a new crystal for it. 😀

The second hand fell off, which is a bonus, I fret about removing the hands from such an old watch. One down, two to go. sometime in the future...
