    I inherited a very worn non-functional pocket watch that is marked with the word KOVER on the dial and has Kover LONDON 7629 engraved on the back of the mechanism.

    I have been able to discover very little about the watchmaker Kover.

    I started a Blog http://kover-london.blogspot.com/ to generate a list of other Kover watches that still exist and to discover documents that refer to the watchmaker Kover.

    Please post a comment at http://kover-london.blogspot.com/ if you have any relevant information.
