My first pocket watch....only because I had to save it from the "Scrap Gold" pile. Couldn't bare to see it be scrapped when she still works so I purchased her for $20.00. My friend didn't want to take the money... she wanted to give it to me but I said nope take the 20. The vest fob wasn't attached to it....she had that in another pile of items and said here use this on it. Fob marked S.O.B. & Co.
On inside of watch;
Watch Specialties Co
DG&S- see arrow
I assume the watch has been worked on by someone with the initials TL on 11/17/39 because that is etched on the inside of the watch. Also there's some other etched numbers which I don't know what they mean 7397 and K inside a circle followed by 3/3. Can be seen in pic#3.
Needs to be cleaned and She will be beautiful. Not a job I would attempt so I will have to find someone local or just clean outside and leave as is.
