    Getting interested in vintage pocket watches.


    I bought 3 vintage pocket watches yesterday from a local jeweler. This 1903 Elgin is my favorite. I got 2 Elgin's and a Waltham. They are on the small side and they might even be a woman's size. But, I don't care as I like the small sizes better. I don't like the bulk of the larger pocket watches.
    So, what do you pocket watch guys think?

    That is a very nice condition fancy dial. Please show the movement?

    Erik,
    I'm heading out of town for the weekend as we speak. I'll post some more pictures Monday when I return and I'll post pics of the movements of the other two also. One is a 1917 Waltham and the other is a 1917 Elgin.

    Looking forward to it. Please open a new thread for each watch, it gets a bit messy when we try to comment on several watches in one thread.
