  19. History on the Keystone Standard Watch Co. Dave http://www.pocketwatchrepair.com/histories/keystone-std.html
  20. mickeysmagic, great watch & box. Ingersoll made a COLBY and so did New Haven. I have a New Haven Colby Compensated. Is yours a New Haven or Ingersoll? Dave
  21. It's great that you were the caretaker of these for your uncle and his son. Thanks for sharing the story and your kindness. Dave

  23. Kerry, Mickey133 left a couple of messages for you here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/59296-mickey-mouse?in=activity
  24. Without seeing the movement and serial number on the movement (the working mechanism) all that can be said, is that it has a Waltham 24 hour dial that is placed over what looks like a paper dial under...
  25. I don't have access to my books right now, but I think Ingersoll LTD, Great Britain had a 17 jewel, 3-finger bridge movement. Like Kerry said, a photo of the movement can help answer your questions. ...
  26. BB2, the number you gave is the number on the case. We need the number on the movement to give you information on the watch. Dave
  27. BB2, This is what I found on the watch case: The case is B&B (Bates & Bacon) founded by Joseph M. Bates & George M. Bacon in Attleboro, MA in 1868. In 1901, B&B was bought out by the Philadelphia Wat...

  32. Nice job BB2. Dave
  33. Nice watch fob. Here is some information on the connection of the Texas Cotton Palace in Waco, Texas and the Circle A Ginger Ale Co. Maybe this fob was made as the plate was, to commemorate the 1910 ...
  34. AmberRose, that was posted by crazycharacter. It is on my list also. Dave
  35. I wish I had a trashed out box for mine! Nice post Kerry. Dave

  37. A little Sekiden history http://www.spanglefish.com/swapmeetpete/index.asp?pageid=268741 Dave
  38. Kerry, just tell everyone that it is a "prototype". Very Rare. Dave

  40. Kerry, I'm not sure why yours didn't get marked. One that slipped by quality control. Dave
  41. Kerry, I just posted a Series "L". Dave http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/113188-waterbury-series-l-8-size?in=611

  45. George, In George Townsend's book "The Watch That Made The Dollar Famous" on page 6, the diagrams showing Ansonia Movements, Plate 2 matches this movement except for the plate stampings: MFG BY THE ...
  46. Nice Kerry. In Townsends book, early 1939 era advertisements list these at $3.95. Dave
  47. In Roy Marcot's book, The History of Remington Firearms, he writes a short (2 paragraphs) on the Remington Egyptian Rolling Block Rifles where a contract for 60,000 rifles was signed on June 30, 1869....
  48. Kerry, Nice Transitional watch & I like the early National Watch Co. dials. Here is a link to my 1884-85 Illinois Transitional. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/72791-illinois-watch-co-trans...
