Postby ulf548 » Sun Oct 11, 2020 2:30 am

Hello!
I inheritated an old IWC pocket clock, build in 1908.

The silver hull is a german product.
Here is the inner side of the backlid: Image
Signs at the inner side of the clockwerk-lid:

I hope, you can give me some information about the hallmarks.
Maybe it is a variation of the sign of "Karl Kaltenbach & Söhne" ?
Thank you in forward!
