Does anyone know if this pocket watch is old? On the face it says Columbia U.S.A. On the inside it says Columbia U.S.A and AG367830 and it says F-S. It has a gold color to it but I doubt that it is gold plated or anything.

    Columbia Watch Company, 1896-1899 Waltham, Massachusetts. Made lower end (mostly) ladies movements; became the Suffolk Watch Company and later became part of the United States Watch Company of Waltham.

    Hello Jonah812, first Thanks for that coplement, :-).That serial # is on the casing, Right?
    Those serial #'s have a meaning as to whom the casing was made by, but doesn't have bearing on the timepiece itself. movement serial #'s are how most watches are ID. The inside cover , between the case outer and the movement appears to have some markings on it, can't make it out in photo. If it says something like "20 or 25 year " it pertains to the warranty on plating and tells basically how thick the plating is. If you read what it says and post in comments, I'll try to translate it's meaning.
    Kerry
