This past weekend I purchased a hunting case Marion pocket watch. Surprisingly, there is very little information about them on the 'net, although I do seem to remember that they were in business only a couple of years. The watch is key-wound, approximately 50 millimeteres in diameter, and tests 10k gold. The works read "Edwin Rollo, Marion, N.J. No. 285265 Pat. Mch 8 70.
I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me if this watch is particularly rare or a fairly common piece. Thanks! Jack.
