Hi, I've inherited a couple of pocket watches (and many bits of watches) from my grandfather. There are two that are pretty much complete, one of which works and keeps fairly good time and I'm wondering whether or not it's worth it to have them restored if possible.
I can't find out much about the one that's working but it's a Porte & Markle Ltd WINNIPEG 17 jewel adjusted S/N 4822325 (case A.W.C. Co. S/N 994339)
The face has some cracking and what looks like a poor repair and the glass falls out
The other is an 1899 model Royal grade A.W.W.Co. S/N 14162207 in a Dennison case, although it has no glass the face looks in perfect condition. I'm not sure what's wrong with the movement but the balance wheel is loose and moves around.
Anyway, any tips or comments about this would be most welcome. I know from looking around that they're not really worth much (even if they were in good condition) but it would be nice to have them in decent order.
