I've recently found two watches in my grandmother's attic, and they appear very old and valuable.
One is what appears to be a solid gold pocketwatch, with a chain.
It says ILLINOIS under the 12, and has a seperate circle at the bottom for seconds.
It has an intricate flowers design on the back, and when you open it, it says
UNION WATCH N CASE CO.
XO9452A is scratched VERY small into the watch, if this is any significance, as well as V1299 X909
On the inside, where the gears are, it says
Illinois springfield watch co
Adjusted 3 positions
The other watch is silver(?)
It says Ingram under the twelve
and BILTMORE over the seconds circle.
It's also a pocketwatch but has no chain as well as no design on the back
I'm afraid that's all I can say about this one, as I have tried multiple times but cannot open it.
When telling me about the watch, a picture for clarification that we're talking about the same one would be nice.
