Vintage Watchstraps. This page is not intended to be a comprehensive reference of watch movements, of which there are hundreds, possibly thousands. It is a small selection of often unidentified old movements that I have been able to positively identify. I don’t intend to show movements with their makers names on them, because they are already identified. The idea of this page is to try to identify otherwise unknown movements found in the type of watches that I collect, which are principally Great War era men’s wristwatches with 12 or 13 ligne movements.
It is often difficult to identify movements from the shape of the top plates or bridges alone.

A pocket watch or pocketwatch is a watch that is made to be carried in a pocket , as opposed to a wristwatch , which is strapped to the wrist. They were the most common type of watch from their development in the 16th century until wristwatches became popular after World War I during which a transitional design, trench watches , were used by the military. Pocket watches generally have an attached chain to allow them to be secured to a waistcoat , lapel , or belt loop , and to prevent them from being dropped.
Watches were also mounted on a short leather strap or fob, when a long chain would have been cumbersome or likely to catch on things. This fob could also provide a protective flap over their face and crystal. Women’s watches were normally of this form, with a watch fob that was more decorative than protective. Chains were frequently decorated with a silver or enamel pendant, often carrying the arms of some club or society , which by association also became known as a fob. Ostensibly practical gadgets such as a watch winding key, vesta case , or a cigar cutter also appeared on watch chains, although usually in an overly decorated style.
Also common are fasteners designed to be put through a buttonhole and worn in a jacket or waistcoat , this sort being frequently associated with and named after train conductors.
