Hello everyone. This is my first post so please bear with me...
I picked up this Rubaiyat pocket watch a few weeks ago and was hoping you could help me identify some more information about it. I believe it was manufactured between 1919-1921 based on the markings throughout the piece. Here is what I know:
- Case Measurements: 42.95mm from 9-3 & 12-6, 50.24mm from 6-crown
- Case Inscriptions: These are all inside the case... American Standard (with Globe), 25 Years, 14K Gold Filled, Monogram Quality, 1054041 (serial number?), there are also 4 scratched inscriptions on the inside of the case - 47123W, X46926, 19826W, L12129... The letters EGS are inscribed on the back of the case.
- Movement Inscriptions: BULOVA W.Co, 17 Jewels, 5 Adjustments, Swiss, 122147 (Movement SN?), under the movement (behind the dial at the 9 & 8 position) there is an inscription of 1213982
That's all I know. The pictures I am posting below are exactly as I received it. I really want to restore this watch and get it functioning properly. I am fairly handy so I would love to do the work myself but I want your opinions before I really start digging into it. In case you didn't notice from the pictures, the glass is also missing.
