I acquired this pocket watch and I can't seem to find out to much history. It is in a gold tone hunter case with 2 covers on the back where the works are and 1 in the front. . All 3 covers are marked by serial #7162790. The inner back case is marked Windsor Guaranteed 20 years B.W.C.Co. The outer case is beautifully engraved. The works are marked American Waltham Watch Co. with a serial #11614041 and it also says safety pinion. The works are also beautifully engraved. Some of my research has shown that this watch was made sometime between 1885 and 1905. The history I would love to know has to do with the dial. It is enamel that is marked Elgin Nat'l Watch Co. with a beautiful portrait of a long ago women. It appears as if the portrait was painted on before final production because the roman numerals and markers mark are on top of the portrait. Does anyone have any info about this or where I can find more info.?
