    Hi Folks,
    I have recently aquired an Antique Majestic pocket Watch(Swiss Made)17 jewel and am looking for some information on it.

    The serial # is 593402 and it appears to be all brass.
    The case # is 713333 Fanys-Monach.
    3 adjustment

    Any information on this that somebody may give me is most appreciated.

    "Majestic" was a name used on some of the many watch movements imported by A. Wittnauer of New York (they also had a branch in Montreal) and often cased here in the USA. I believe Majestic might have been a house brand or private label of A. Wittnauer. If memory serves, I think that I saw a Majestic watch that might have been made by the Swiss firm of G. Thommen of Waldenburg (it has been a while). They provided Wittnauer with many of the movements sold under the Wittnauer name.

    We would need to see a photo of the movement of your watch to possibly identify it with more certainty.

    I have a Majestic watch and under the dial it is marked Wittnauer.

    According to Pritchardís Swiss Timepiece Makers Majestic were brand names of Wittnauer, Gruen and Thommen
