    Newly inherited Hamilton pocket watches. I have very little info and would appreciate any help. The boxed one has a serial # 3399075 so I believe it is from 1938. Thanks

      Thanks for the speedy response Kerry.
      Now I need to figure out how to open the back with damaging it.
      (I watched some UTube ideas but I'm still afraid.)
