    Help 18 century pocket watch Identification Wiliam Glascow London

    Hi ,

    I am new to this forum and am hoping someone can help me identify the watch I have just received.
    Silver pocket watch has some problems as seen in pictures.
    Signed William Glascow London. 2133

    HALLMARKS: leopard with crown, Lion, letter A, and nobleman head.


    Is this a 18 century pocket watch?
    Could this watch be restored?

    Does a watch like this in present condition have any value?


    Thank You, Thank You for your time and expertise!

    Closeups of the hallmarks would be very useful. If the watch does not run, repair costs are likely to exceed what you can sell it for.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Capital A for 1796 fits for this old verge.
    It has value as it is, people buy watches in this condition to restore them.
