These items were laying around mom's house. I believe they came from her side of the family. The lavaliere pendant is from circa 1921. However, the three watches I have not been able to pin down any relevant year or information. I have not seen anything like them on the internet. Could someone please give me some info on them. I know the watches are late 1800's early 1900's, but if someone knows a closer date please tell me.

    take the backs off very carefully, or get a watch maker to. On the back should be a date, scratched in, and a gold mark, if it is gold. If they work, the value is higher. best place to look for the value is ebay in the archive pages, but you need to know whether they are gold or not, the maker, and the condition first. love the lavelier

    These are all guesses but should be close based on my own collection and book material. Picture #1 tank style case, rolled gold plated , 1948- to early 1950's. Picture #2 stepped case, gold plated, rhinestone dial, 1945-1948. Picture #3 Ladies very thin model , usually had a rope style band, late 1940's to early 1950's. They made these for many years . All 3 in good working order and minimal wear on the gold plate cases average around 100 to 125.00 dollars. Hope this helps. Reference case numbers and movement serial numbers would help date these closer for you. A trip to your local watch repair person could also give you more detail after looking inside the watches.
