    Vintage Pocket Watches I noticed at Historical Park.

    Today I spent the afternoon at my local Historical Park here in Calgary known has Heritage Park. It's a large outdoor park that recreates what life was like during the early years of my city/region. On one of streets there was a re-creation of a local jeweler/watchmaker shop that actually existed in my city in the early 20th century. Anyway of course I went to look at it and to my surprise the shop window had what looks to me like three actual vintage pocket watches (well at least the cases). I don't know much of anything about pocket watches so I'd figure I'd post a picture here.

    The one on the top left has the jewelers markings (D.E.B Calgary) and "Swiss Made" near the 6 o'clock position. The other to the right only has the Jewelers markings. And the bottom one is clearly an Elgin. Anyway. Thought maybe some of you would find interesting.

    Nice! That Elgin looks interesting. I wonder if some the folks on this channel could verify (or at least opine on) these. I'll have to check it out next time I'm in Calgary (Winter 17/18).

    The Elgin is a "sidewinder", that is, a hunter case movement placed in an open face case. Usually done when the original hunter case has worn out and a new one is not available or is not wanted.

    Two missing second hands and one missing bow.
