      That's gorgeous! Nothing like being in the right place at the right time! :-)))))

      Can you post a photo of the inside of the watch case?
    6. Celiene Celiene, 5 years ago
      Possibly the watch is from 1937, the same date as the coin? Beautiful, substantial watch!

      Oh - G. M. Wheeler is a gentleman's watch.

      Yours looks like the 1888 one here. Cases were often made by other companies, no? The case should be marked.

      You need to look inside to determine date made.

      i'll say 1910, thats when PHILADELPHIA WATCH CASE COMPANY got into these Niello cases.

      Exquisite watch and fob. Where did you find such a gorgeous watch? In your title you wrote "great find". You left me guessing. Please share.
