Unknown silver hallmark? Pocket watch


#1

I have a sterling silver antique pocket watch with this hallmark on the inside case, and on both sides of the movement case.

It looks like a turkey, but I’m not sure. It is from a european sterling silver gentleman’s pocket watch.

Hi there,

It looks like the Swiss purity mark for .800 (its actually a grouse!).

Switzerland made A LOT of watches (and still do!).

Hope that helps,

Ben
