Info on keystone pocket watch please

#1 Post by Dave.f » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:26 am

Hi all I’m new here and I was wondering if anyone could give me some information on a watch I have owned for the last forty years or so, the watch is made by the keystone watch case company, i know they made cases for a lot of manufacturers but can’t seem to find much on them.both the case and movement are keystone. The watch belonged to my great great grandfather, all I know is that he was a watch maker in London, I have no idea at all how he came to own an American pocket watch. Any info would be greatly appreciated

That is weird. I don't think Keystone ever made movements. I would think it was made by somebody else for Keystone. But the strange part is why the Keystone Watch Case Co. would have any interest in doing that.
Real men wear small watches.

Hi afire I have tried on several occasions to find out any info but pretty much drawn a blank. So I thought I’d join a forum and see if anyone can help. Being in the uk doesn’t help either so I was hoping someone from over the pond might be able to help. I was told in the 80s that it was made of pinchbeck which I subsequently found out was utter rubbish, as he never divulged how to make his alloy and took it to the grave.
