    Garage Sale Finds! Elgin Pocket watches!

    I just picked up 3 Elgin pocket watches (and 20 other watches and parts) at a garage sale for $9 USD! The two in a pocket watch case actually still work.
    I have 3 questions.
    1. Does anyone have an approximate year on these watches (the one outside of the case is 1912/13)
    2. How do I open the other two pocket watches so I can see the serial number?
    3. Where can I find a crystal to replace the missing one?


    Thanks a lot! It was a great day!!

    Cool pickups. I like that 3:00 sub second. More than likely, the backs should just screw off.
