Hello, my name is Wojciech, and I'm in possession of a pocket watch.
I'm interested in details of this watch and its history.
All the information I have is that:
- It has 18k gold warranty case
- It has split second hand
- It has moon-dail
- It has minute repeater
- It has calendar'' Leap Year...
My Father is giving me a family heirloom that my Great Grandfather gave him. He is giving it to me for funding my two son's college education...woot! He had it appraised several years back and it came out to somewhere around 50K...though he doubts that it will fetch "near that much" in today's...
I have a 1911 Elgin pocketwatch that does not work. I have unscrewed the caseback with success but can not seem to get the bezel off in order to remove the movement. It is missing its crystal and is missing one of either the hour or minute hands (looks like the minute to me). Is there a trick...
