Recommended Posts

I have my grandfather's pocket watch. It's dated 1908 and has no name on it. It has a maker's mark of a bow with 2 crossed arrows. any information about it will be much appreciated.

Thanks for the help Mikrolisk. Do you have any idea what it is worth? It runs when I wind it, but I can't pull the crown out to set it. The case is in excellent condition. It's been sitting in a felt bag for about 70 years.

Eek!! Don't pull out the crown! You'll damage the watch!!

There's a lever at the 4 o'clock position. Pull THAT out (it pops out a few milimeters), then turn the crown to set the time. Then pop the lever back in. You have what's called a "lever set" watch. And what looks like a very nice one. Don't wreck it!
