Two pocket watches which belonged to my grandparents, back in working order thanks to Mr Dafydd Ellis of Porthmadog!!
The first is a small Waltham in a pretty gilt case.
The case is marked: C.W.C.CO. 303813
The movement: AMERICAN WALTHAM WATCH CO SAFETY PINION 4436554
Am I correct that this would be from 1889 - 1890?
The second is a standard size (?) watch, lever set hands and on both the face and the movement it is marked America PHILADELPHIA U.S.A.
Serial No. on the movement is 2706733
The case is marked Keystone Watch Case Sterling 5033248 and on the inner case cover Guaranteed Sterling 925 Fine.
I know nothing about watches! But having scoured the internet I can find nothing about a watchmaker "America".
I am curious as both these watches are connected to my family history.
