    Can someone provide some information about some of these pocket watches and wristwatches?

    Hey guys,
    I have a few watches and pocket watches that i would like to have some information about. I have looked around online and i cant seen to find too much information about them. I'm looking to really know how old they are, any info about them and their value. Thanks in advance!


    First one up is a Waltham gold wristwatch
    It has the words Speidal on the inside of the band on every link. On the inside it says 17 jewels, swiss. It has no serial number inside. I have not seen any other square Walthams like this..
