    My grandfather's Ball pocket

    Sadly, my grandfather passed away, and my Aunt sent me his old watches, which I plan to fix up as family heirlooms for my brother and myself. If someone could please help me identify the Ball pocket watch, along with suggestions on restoring it (in a cost effective manner). An imgur gallery is here:

    I know next to nothing so it may be beyond repair, but initially I thought about cannibalizing one on eBay for parts but I don't know where to begin. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    P.S. Rick was helpful with the Hamilton and Jaeger, but if anyone has additional info on them or the Benrus I would be grateful. Thanks in advance

    Try the Vintage & Pocket Watch forum under Theme Forums. I think you will have better luck there.
