I just got an old pocket watch from an aunt, she tells me a while back she took the watch to sell it but the guy told here the machine was hand made and she should not sell the watch just as gold.
I have no idea about watches and is very hard to find someone in Mexico that handles this, so I wanted to see if the watch is worth the trouble.
Is a pocket watch, apparently gold with the number 9830 on the inside of both back covers and the numebr 30 on the inside front cover.
The outside is not very well kept and the inside has the following text:
No 9830 / Tadeo Tritschler / Guadalajara / Aiguilles / ECHAPPEMENT A CYLINDRE / HUIT / TROUS EN RUBIS
On the face of the watch is apparently the same text: Tadeo Tritschler / Guadalajara
Hope you can tell me is is valuable just for the gold or I should check the machine as well.
Let me knwo if I can do anything else to find out about the clock or if by any chance you have information about a store here in Mexico, preferably Guadalajara.
