    Looking for help I.D. pocket watches, vintage watches.

    My buddy at work had a few pieces he had brought in for me to see, they were inherited and are some fun vintage pieces. I figure I will post them all in this sub forum first, and migrate any I do not have luck with to the appropriate forums.


    Thanks in advance!



    I am basically seeing if anyone can tell me anything including possible year, rarity and value, all are vintage and none of them are fake.




    #1. Waltham Pocket Watch.




    #2 Elgin Pocket Watch.




    #3 Brumer Dudley Pocket Watch.




    #4 Hamilton Wrist Watch.




    #5 Citizen Wrist Watch.

    This is the right place for sure. If you try the other forums they'll likely move the posts here anyway. :oops:
    We can probably ID them for you with the exception of the Citizen, if we have the serial numbers off the movements (not the cases). Please read our sticky note on watch identification.
    We don't do any watch valuations here for reasons explained in our sticky notes. To be honest, it's probably not worth worrying about. Pocket watches are the greatest bargains in watch collecting, which is not good news for sellers who think these beauties are valuable because they are old.

    If we can see the caseback on the citizen we may be able to tell more.
    "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!

    I will get the codes, and can move the citizen to the citizen forum if I need to!


    Should have the codes in a couple of days. :)

    No need to move it as we have Citizen guys who visit. If necessary I'll ask Isthmus to look in.
