    What has mum left me?

    Mumpassed away just over a year ago, I am still sorting through her treasures. Today I have found 2 pocket watches. Dont know much about them and have never seen them before.
    1. Silver coloured with the words tavannes on dia

    2. Gold coloured see photos.

    can someone point me in the right direction., may need to value them for her estate.

    In-focus movement and interior photos will be needed. Please try to capture all markings so that they can be read. For example, the markings on the inside of the gold case are not legible in that photo.

    The Tavannes watch looks to be of late manufacture (for pocket watches) so around the 1950s? The gold one appears to be earlier and could date back to late Victorian times. As Dan says you will need to post better photos for more info.
