    Roskopf "Mountain Climbing" Engraved Goldtone Case Pocket Watch Circa 1900. This is a gorgeous 2.125" diameter watch with a high-relief scene on the back depicting two men climbing a rugged mountain with ropes. The scene is surrounded by a flower and leaf design border which is repeated on the front bezel- all against a black antiqued background. The movement cover is also engraved with a scene reminiscent of the Swiss alps; a climber's backpack and equipment is shown in the foreground while the background features the mountains, a climber and a quaint mountain home. The movement itself has a circular marking with "SCS" in the center and "Systeme Roskopf" around the outside. The Roman-numeraled dial is beautiful with black numbers, gold minute marks, a sunken seconds dial, and an elaborate manufacturer's logo in the form of a flower. The watch is running and is crown-wound and push-button set. The condition is very nice with essentially no noticeable wear. What better scenes to have on a Swiss watch!
