I have 2 old pocket watches that I would like appraised

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

1)a CATOREX. white face with black numbers and hands. inlaid dial at bottom - looks like seconds, "INCABLOCK" it looks like in small letters above the inlaid dial at the bottom. ornate silver case with what appears to be Jonny Appleseed spreading seeds carved on the front and somekind of floral pattern on the back. It's fairly heavy, relatively speaking. No chain.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Not that I know of on the first on.
