My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.
The next step would be for me to see pictures of the watch, dial, inner case mark and the movement (guts). The serial number of a pocket watch is on the movement, not on the case. Let me know which number is ***** the movement (guts) and I can tell you exactly when it was made.
Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures (one at a time) and I will be able to complete my answer, thank you!
Please note that the serial number on a pocket watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the gold case. Let me know which of these numbers that you have given is on the movement of the watch.
This is a Howard open face 14k gold pocket watch in size 18s with a 15-jewel, model III movement.
This watch was made from 1861 to 1871. This watch was re-cased at some point in time as
this movement (guts and dial) was originally in a hunter case, which is a case that has a cover that closes over the dial.
This is not uncommon, I do see these from time to time. This watch with a later art deco period (1920's)chain has a value of
$450.00 to $550.00.
