    Info needed on Wittnauer Pocket watch

    I have done some research and I believe that this pocket watch is from the 1926 Philadelphia Sesquicentennial Exposition. I am seeking and would greatly appreciate any additional information on this beautiful piece.

    Thanks much!

    Thanks Marrick! I found this on oldwristwatches.com.... "In 1926, Wittnauer exhibited a collection of timepieces at the Philadelphia Sesquicentennial Exposition and was awarded the Grand Prize for beauty and workmanship. That same year, NBC chose Wittnauer to supply Longines watches for official radio broadcast timing. The phrase "A. Wittnauer Co., distributors of world famous Longines observatory watches presents the correct time" was used for years."
