Customer Question

Photo of Elgin Pocket watch for which I requested an insurance value. The watch was given to my late father-in-law on his 21st birthday (approx 1923) by his mother. We are not sure if it belonged to his father, grandfather, etc. Any help will be appreciated.

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. There was only one picture that came with your original inquiry (blurry front).The next step would be for me to see pictures of marks on the inside of the case and the number on the movement (guts) so that I can get visual clues of the date and value.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!
