    Took this pocket watch in on trade

    I was working a trade and the other side didn't want to put up any cash, so I took this one as part of the trade.

    I'm not a pocket watch collector, but this one was too nice to pass up.

    It's in an Elgin Commander Case with a SN of 73764

    Nice hunter case.How about a shot of the movement.If that serial number came off the movement it was made in 1879.And I see it's lever set to set the time you have to pull that out to move the hands.

    According to the serial number on the movement (377719), your watch was made in 1891.

    Going to the trade forum

    After of couple of days of thinking about whether to keep or release it, I've decided to release it. I figure if I keep it, then I'll need another, and another, and another....... You know, it's disease we all have
