    The watch hallmarks mean the following, The anchor means it was made in Birmingham England, The lion means it is 925 parts of silver per 1000 (sterling silver), The letter Z means it was made in 1899.

    Thank you ozcopper for looking that up for me. Trying to decide if it's worth getting serviced. Don't know if it works
    It has a square shaft which I guess is to wind it, but don't have the key.
    Might get it looked at
    Thanks

    here there everywhere
    Here's the lowdown on pocketwatches
    If they are working & are .925 , they sell for $150-$200 retail & hard to sell
    If not working generally they are worth more to fix than what they are worth
