    My Grandfather's Old Pocket Watch

    He was born in 1897. A very tough man. He had a Delmar that he used throughout the 60's and 70's. It seems he never touched this one. I just recently discovered it. Unfortunately the glass has broke. I don't know how to open the movement or to get it running again. It says 14k gold on the clasp. Just wondering of anyone here has any idea about where or when this is from just by looking at the dial and the very distinctive hands and engraving.

    Looks nice. The Links and Articles subforum (at the top of the forum page) has an article on opening cases.
    "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!
