I got this watch this week from my granduncle who says Great Great Grandfathers who was a blacksmith. Inside it says it's 17 jewels Appleton Tracy & Co and that it's from Waltham Mass. The Serial number is 10044452 and it's adjusted. From the serial number database it says it's 1883 model size 18s, full plated, open-faced, special grade. I dont know what any of that means so if anyone knows, thatd be greatly appreciated. It ha/ obvious wear but I was wondering if it is easy enough to get a new face for it and a new hand or the little dial, as well as how I can check to see if it works. Also was wondering what a special grade meant and if this watch is even worth fixing up aside from just a sentimental value standpoint. Thanks in advanced for any advice or comments!
