I inherited this pocketwatch marked "Wyler" on its face from my dad, Lloyd Shetler. This watch was given to him by a friend of his and he wore it proudly when he got dressed up for formal functions. The crystal is made of plastic, and has a slightly greenish tinge to it which doesn't really show in the pictures.
I hesitated to post this because I don't know much about this watch or even about the maker. What kind of escapement does it contain? As far as age, I believe it dates to somewhere between the late 1940's and early 1950's - but I could be wrong. If anyone can tell me what size the case is (judging by the proximity to the American quarter), or a little about the history of the Wyler watch company, I'd appreciate being contacted with whatever details you'd be willing to share. You'll find an "E-Mail Me" link on my collection website at http://dougsclocks.hpage.com/ . Thanks for looking - this watch runs and keeps perfect time!
