Hi there. I am new to the forum and have no knowledge of vintage pocket watches. I inherited these 3 pocket watches from my grandparents estate. I would appreciate any information regarding age, maker, and approximate value. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions. I have included pictures with any maker's marks, brand names, etc. Thank you very much!

Watch #1 - pictures 1 and 2 (it says Illinois on the face and has a pocket knife attached)
Watch #2 - pictures 3-5 (it has an E on the face and has markings on the inside cover - 18, K, and a crown)
Watch #3 - pictures 6-7 (it says United States Watch Co. on the face)

Hi and welcome
The first watch is a 'basic' Illinois (American made) pocket watch.
I doubt gold or ant great intrinsic value.

The second watch is lovely. I think Swiss and 18kt gold. It is a ladys hunter (style) and I wonder if the crown does more than just wind and set hands.
Very nice piece.
A little research on dial logo may find the maker

The third watch is American, hunter again, might be pin set (to set hands) at 5.00 oclock
Not sure if gold?

Pictires of all movements and inside case always helps.

Three generally nice pieces, but the second wins for me.

all pieces circa 1910-->1920s

Enjoy

Thank you Adam for the information. I greatly appreciate it. I will try to add additional pictures of the movements and inside case if I can figure out how to open them.

Cool.
i will do a search on the middle watch logo.
i suspect that is a good piece, dial is beautiful. Enamel and case 18kt gold, all points to nice piece,
