It’s obviously convenient to wear a watch around your wrist, but there’s something to be said about the stylish pocket watch that you just don’t get with your standard wrist watch. Pocket watches of days (and centuries) past were truly special; ornately engraved, personal and meaningful, and able to tell a story about their owners, pocket watches were and continue to be truly special. We want to take a closer look at them and invite you to do the same!
from: Randy Colby: “Illinois Bunn Special watch, carried by my great uncle, who was a passenger conductor on the Pennsylvania Rail Road”
from: Jonathan Ware: “Can anyone identify this pocket watch by these markings on the inside?”
from: Bridget Borchert: “Vintage watch pins and pendants. Loved them and collected since I purchased the two Lucerne pendants new in the mid 70’s. “
from: Paige Lawson: “So I tried to share this from my phone, it went to a message rather than on the board… Anyway, this is a Key wound pocket watch. It was found at my great aunts house after she passed. Works perfectly! Keeps great time. Inside of the back cover is Double D’or K 18. 2 0 0 5 1. I haven’t been able to find any info as to when it was made, but if anyone knows anything, I’d love to find out!”
from: Jeanne Malmberg Spencer: “I bought this rose gold ladies pendant watch & know nothing about its age or use. The dial is a delft-blue enamel, with delicate fillagree hands. The case has markings on inside back, “TKGF” & a heart with letters KE. Your post on clocks inspired me to submit this for your consideration. Thank you.”
from: Sheila Cross: “Anyone know anything about this watch. Thank you”
from: Barbara Newell: “I also have this watch. It was in my Dad’s family. They came over to America from Germany in the 1900’s. I would really like to know about this particular one. Still in the same box it was bought in.”
from: Randy Colby: “Inside to the Illinois Bunn Special watch, carried by my great uncle, a passenger conductor on the Pennsylvania Railroad. I don’t remember this dog. He had a different one when I was little.”
from: Sandi Christman: “Looking for some help determining the value of this women’s pocket watch. HAMPDEN DUEBER special. Case states made in Germany. Internals from Molly Stark Canton O. seriel 1300239 USA. Inside pocket watch cover there is a seriel number 4176511. Has a beautiful engraved floral design and bird on the cover. It belonged to my grandmother, who inherited from her Aunt. Has to be fairly old since my grandmother would be 106 years if she were still alive. Any info on how to determine the date of this piece and value would be greatly appreciated.”
