    My mother-in-law gave me this pocket watch quite a few years ago. I forgot all about it until I saw Kerry's posting of her watch. The picture makes it look like the numbers are faded, but that is not the case. I could not capture the right angle without a glare. All the numbers are in perfect condition. My mother-in-law is 92 years old now. I believe this watch belonged to her mother. It was in working condition when I got it, but the winding mechanism seems to have stopped working now. I don't really know too much about it. It says "Swiss Civic Watch Co. 15 Jewels"on the inside. There is a number that I thought was the serial number, but I cannot find anything to match it. It is 2ADJT6, I believe. That's all I know! I am curious to find out the age of this watch. If anyone can tell me how to go about doing that, it would be greatly appreciated. I've exhausted all my efforts in trying to figure it out! Thanks for looking!

      Sorry lndrozdenko, I have no way of dating Swiss watches, unless they were also American Company sold pieces. But what I can estimate from the general construction and design. I could safely say 1900's into the 20's and be comfortable making that statement. Beautiful watch and Family Heirloom's always hold a special memory in our lives. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece, sorry couldn't be anymore help.

      Thank you Kerry, you did help me! I truly appreciate it. I tried researching and did not come up with anything substantial, so I thought I would put it out there. Just knowing the early 1900's is a lot more than I knew. Thank you for your help and your love. It is a great family heirloom from a beautiful woman. I will always treasure it ~ and, hopefully, some day see if it can be fixed. Thanks again and thank you for your love! :-)

      Hello again, I forgot to add, I believe this would have been a "Woman Wrist Bracelet" watch very much like the Waltham I have posted... the "Bow" above the crown is missing and would have been the attachment point foe the other end of bracelet. this bottom tab , which is attached solid to the case has been use to attach the chain so this watch could still be useable piece after the bow disappeared/broken, and used as a Pendant/necklace watch

      I do have a few more of these "Transition" style watches, they also used a strap with gold hooks on each end and could be adjusted with a slider buckle in the center. I'll see about digging a couple out and show you the workings of the different wrist ideas
