Hello all, I imagine some will recognimze me from the SCWF. I don't know much, if anything at all about pocket watches, but I recently purchased a pocket watch from a popular auction site and I would very much appreciate any information any of you might be able to share. According to the seller this 18K watch is about 1 1/2" wide and circa 1849. I am fairly certain it may be missing the interior dust cover (so this observation will not hurt my feelings one bit). The watch appeared to be in very good condition for the represented age, and I thought it would be neat to add an old 18K gold pocket watch to my collection.
Thanks in advance for any words of "ws" dom.
