"Here you can have them!"
That's what our friend said! He was tired of having to
rearrange his display case for them; they're not what he collects.
We didn't either, but not for lack of appreciation and/or wanting to.
The 1st and 2nd pics are of the watch that works, and the 3rd and 4th pics are of 1 that doesn't.
We've tried looking for info, but cant find anything that says (1st) '15 jewel' or (2nd) '17 jewel'
Can somebody help tell us about them.

    The second watch is a 17-jewel, size 18s. model "83" grade "87" made c.1904. It looks like it needs a mainspring barrel & cover and complete blance. As is, it is a nice donor watch for parts as most of the missing parts have matching serial numbers.

    The first watch is a size 16s. 15-jewel, model "99" grade "620". Made c.1906.
    It appears to be a complete, running watch.

    WOO-HOO!! Thank you.
    I believe my honey has more of the parts from the broken one; he says if he's not mistaken he has pretty much all but the spring! If such is the case, in your opinion is it salvageable?
