    I got this pocket watch, very beautiful but there are no markings on it. I was hoping that someone would maybe know a make or model or where it would have came from. Any info about it would be great.

    The enamel picture is the Chinese immortal ShouXing holding a peach. I think that may mean that the watch was made in China.

    China makes buttloads of these cheap pocketwatches. I wouldn't be surprised if it was less than 10 years old.

    I agree, a very recent Chinese watch decorated with something resembling cloisonné enamel. My guess is that the enamel is synthetic though.

    Pocketwatches became fashionable again with the steampunk style. If you search for 'pocketwatch' on ebay or similar sites, you will see a lot of recently made watches. Unfortunately those rarely have the quality of antique watches.
