Hypothetically speaking, let’s say you’ve inherited or bought an antique pocket watch.
Nothing was wrong with it, no parts were missing, broken or worn out prior to or after the first service it’s seen in who-knows-how-long.
As far as you’re concerned, each part is original to the watch which...
I came seeking help with checking condition and age of this pocket watch.
The sir says they run but eventually stop and I am not sure if they are just dirty or there is something wrong inside. Thus I am asking for your help if it is worthy buying them.
Thank you in advance :)
I came here to seek help with dating this pocket watch I am about to buy :)
I also wanted to ask what does the little hand between the words avance and retard indicate and why is it close to the lower one :)
Thank you in advance!
I have a very nice (in my opinion) little 15 jewel American pocket watch made in 1911.
It’s an excellent time keeper so I like to carry it with me in the watch pocket on my blue jeans, which gets a bit sweaty in the summer.
We also have high humidity here in SW Ontario in the summer months.

Hey everyone- Long time listener, first time caller. In advance, thanks for any help on this one, I'm quite stumped (and frustrated). Being a repeater/chime watch and with the dust cover giving me some clues to go by, I thought this would be an easy one to "crack the code" on, but boy am I...

Hi i have come across a mantle clock and am trying to return it to its rightful owner. In the process I have become interested in its origins and was wondering if anyone could offer any insights. It appears to have been gilt and has painted porcelain face. And a stamp on the back reads “Charles 63”.
Hello! I recently received a Bengard wristwatch and have not been able to find any information online regarding the company. Does anyone else happen to have a watch by Bengard or know anything about them? The watch looks to be 1920s. It is my first vintage/antique watch and I hope to find a...
I want to ask about an Vintage Omega Constellation,
I have this watch from many years, it is from my grandpa, but I can’t find any information about it or about it’s expected value
The only thing I know is it’s made of 18k gold
Can anyone tell me about it and it’s expected value?
I haven't found out much about this watch other than it appears to have been made in 1880. I have no illusions that it's worth much to anyone else, not that I would ever consider selling it anyway. Perhaps someone can tell me more about it or finds it interesting.
I had been watching this listing for a while, because I liked the way it looks. Almost 1 year goes by and I decide to though in a 33% of asking price offer to start haggling. To my surprise it got accepted immediately. And boy, it sure doesn't disappoint either. Been on my wrist for a while now...
I would like to check out vintage watches in my area but would like to know if the community knows of some good reputable stores/places in my area that some of you who live in the Twin Cities, MN know of and like.
A couple months ago I fell in love with the craftsmanship and history (and everything else) of American pocket watches. I quickly bought a beautiful 15j Illinois 16s, with slight damaskeening on the mainspring barrel and nice stripes everywhere else (grade 173). The watch is working great...

I've owned this watch for 2 years and it was the first watch I purchased from Art Dial Watch. It was serviced prior to purchase. Watch winds and runs perfectly. The movement also snaps into the case very tight, with a loud snap...
