Pocket watch

Hi
Could anybody identify this for me, or share a link to a website that could give me the info. The watch face has M.Levensohn Wrexham on it, and the hallmarks are lion anchor and Z
The chain has lion, y and CH
Any info would be terrific.
Thanks

Re: Pocket watch

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.

Re: Pocket watch

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

Re: Pocket watch

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
