Glad to be here! I come to you seeking aid in determining what it is that I've got. I'm not new to antique items, have a passion for history, however, my knowledge concerning watches is close to nonexistent.
I am interesting in any information about relative value, quality, condition, age and history that could be deduced from it. I'm providing detailed pictures but if anything in particular needs to be photographed, I can do it. To me, this watch appears to be from around 1820's to 1830's, but I would like to hear opinion of the experts and enthusiasts that post here. In my experience, I find it best to refer to true enthusiasts with a passion for the subject, that is often found on online forums, rather than "professionals" in real life.
