I'm looking for a little bit of assistance. The attached photo's show my Great Grandfather's watch. Right out of the gate, I will say that I couldn't care less what it is worth, and I won't be asking either.
My Great Grandmother was 3 month pregnant with my Grandfather, when my GGF was killed in a train accident while working on the railway. His watch was passed on to me when my Grandfather passed away a number of years ago. When I received the watch, it wasn't in working order, as it wouldn't wind to run. Several attempts finally landed me in contact with a watchmaker that could find the parts needed to get the watch functioning again having to source parts from several locations. New old parts installed, cleaned and oiled, back in working condition keeping proper time. It set me back $500 but I wanted the thing in working order.
I suspect this to be just a normal everyday, nothing special pocket watch easily accessible by the general public at the time. What if anything could a member here provide to fill in a little more of the details of the watch, so that when the time comes to pass it down the line, I have a little more of a story to travel with the watch.
Thanks for any information anyone can provide.
