DF & Co pocket watch Identification

Question

I can't beleive its been 2 years since I last posted here! I still watch all of Marks videos though!

I used to post here regular, but life changes your path sometimes and I'm now getting back into watches again. so heres my story!

My Nan passed away a couple of weeks ago (97) and my Mum and I began the clear up operation at the weekend. In a draw was 2 pocket watches, both seized, one minus its glass. I serviced this one first and it went smoothly & I'm about to order a glass for it.

The other was not so good, the minute wheel is missing teeth, presumable from a heavy handed hour wheel push on! so can anyone help me ID the movement or help me with a minute wheel or cousins reference number to order one? I have two sons, & it would have been nice to have given each one, one of these watches as a keep sake.

the watch on the left is the one I've got working & need to order a glass & the DF & Co is on the right.

Turned to eBay and after trawling the pocket watches (why do people always show the dial before the movement! Especially on “needs servicing” watches that are obviously spares or repairs!) I found another, which arrived today and boom swapped the minute wheel and away it went.

    • "Philip head screws"   are very common and loads of timex dead watches out there for "a buck or two".  I did not know the screws came in metric and S.A.E..  vin
    • Unless you have another watch you can steal them from, it will be hard to say that they are "screw x". You should be able to get those from a normal fastener supplier though. You just need to know the thread pitch, diameter, and length of the screws. You can measure the thread pitch with one of these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_pitch_gauge Note that metric and imperial systems measure screws differently of course, so if you're having trouble getting something that is exactly right, try using the other system. Googling around should get more details on getting the right measurements.
       
    • I have the above watch that has four small cross head screws holding the back of the case on. My question is that these look rather worn so where are places to get these screws and what measurements would be needed? The pic is not the actual watch but is the model. TIA Mike
    • .. on the other hand, there is the ETA 2893-2 automatic GMT for example... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Authentic-ETA-2893-2-automatic-GMT-watch-movement-Victorinox/132919302254?hash=item1ef29b986e:g:KOMAAOSwuJRcG5Kj:rk:55:pf:0
