    Ken, Found one right off, not a "Getty" but a nice Trenton three fingered bridge From Ingersoll, original warranty slip, matching serial # and produced in 1909 , sold for $5.00 new. Will post if you wanna see

    Perfect condition! I'm not a great old watch collector, but I've always wanted to have a XIX c. pocket watch with enamel dial and Roman numerals
