    Stan: Can I ask for your help on something?

    I'm looking at ebay item #320680568470, a trench watch with the Everlite brand name, and Everlite AND Langendorf signed movement w/15 jewels. Price is $175 on the "Buy it now" price. The inside caseback is marked Illinois Case Watch Co. , Elgin, and Sterling, although there is no sterling or coin silver mark. The watch appears to be in good condition, but it has a personal name engraved on the outside caseback. Seller dates it at @1918.

    The seller makes no claim either way about running condition, and I have asked the question, still waiting for an answer.

    Cary Hurt says this is one of the brands of the Ditisheim brothers, which I think would be a good thing, but it seems to me to be a pretty low price considering the condition (appearance) of the watch. Is it because of the personal engraving? Does that diminish the value of the piece (assuming it's in decent repair)?
