I have a gold Elgin pocket watch. Its a Wadsworth Referee

This answer was rated:

I have a gold Elgin pocket watch. It's a Wadsworth Referee warrented 20 years and the number on the inside of the back of the casing is(NNN) NNN-NNNN The inside of the watch itself is numbered 20282326 and also says double roller. On the inside of the back case it has engraving of the years it has been serviced. It looks like the earliest date is 2/3/24. There is also things like B831, K926 and 970 JS engaved on it. Is there any way you can give me some idea of what this watch is worth?


According to the serial numbers this watch was made in 1917. This is in a gold filled case aka 20 year case. This watch would sell at auction and on sites such as ebay for $100-150.
