This is my first pocket watch. There is a long history, sort of, that goes with it. My great great great grandfather, came to America, established himself in the furthest west settlement at the time. He went back to Germany and brought his mother and two brothers back with him. His brother Peter gave this watch to his nephew, my great great grandfather, for christmas in 1897. It has been handed down now to me, the fifth generation since it's purchase. It's a HEAVY 18k god case. The movements are dated at about 1884.
