Ottoman

The epoch of the Ottoman models ranges from 1690 - 1920. These pocket watches were then used in the Ottoman Empire. However, they were not built by Turks, but mainly by French and later also English watchmakers. The German company Junghans also built wall clocks with such numerals for the Ottoman market. Ottoman models are primarily characterized by the Ottoman numerals, which were completely abolished in 1920 by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Today, these Ottoman pocket watches are highly sought-after collector's items, since only the best watchmakers built such watches and only the most precious materials such as gold, enamel and tuquoise were used.


We offer the "Ottoman" models with enamelled or black dials, in the sizes 40 mm, 43 mm or 45 mm.
