    Question on U.S. Watch Company pocket watch

    I received a pocket watch from my uncle who has passed. It's a U.S. Watch Company pocket watch serial number 15258. It does not run. My question-- does the watch have enough value to get it repaired or should I just keep it for sentimental value? I can post a picture if that would help. Lemme know. Thanks!

    There were two American companies that went by the name "United States Watch Company", one in Marion, NJ and the other in Waltham, MA. I've also seen a few other watches bearing this name.

    A picture will help immensely in determining what exactly you have.
