    Here are some good resources for you. If you wait, somebody might do the research for you, but some people get satisfaction from doing it themselves.

    I'd say these watches are from the 1930's, considering their style. I own a Bulova from late 20's and an Elgin from late 30's: their fonts, indexes and hands are very similar to those on your pieces.

    Have the cases opened and take a look at the movements: they certainly will provide further info about these watches (serial numbers, manufacture markings...).
