This vintage ladies pocket watch with its hand painted porcelain dial, gunmetal case and movements by A Schild, a Swiss company based in Grenchen is darling. The dial is a creamy white with black Roman numerals and hands, and pink flowers with blue and gold accents. The gunmetal case has a golden plated crown, bow ring and band around the crystal. The marks on the outer cover include Acier Garanti, which translates to gunmetal, and 129477, the A Schild marks on the inner works, 7 7 with a symbol too faint to read on the inner cover. I know very little about watches and was told this is Victorian, but since I have not been able to confirm this I can only say that it is in that style. This petite piece is non working, it is suitable as an accessory only, I have never tried to have it fixed. It is in wonderful vintage condition with nothing more than age appropriate wear to the case, the dial and crystal are in terrific shape and it measures 1.25 inches by 1.75 inches. I love the way it looks as a pendant, I've shown it on a watch chain which is how I wore it, for illustration only. This little gem would look adorable hanging from a watch pin or added to a charm bracelet.
According to my research, the Schild family set up the first factory making bare watch movements, also known as ébauches, in 1896. In 1925 A. Schild and 22 other ébauche makers grouped together to form an organization which became Ébauches SA and which is now part of The Swatch Group Ltd.
