Have had this passed down to me, and hearing it's been passed over 4 generations so far. I decided to research it, and it's not as easy as i thought! There are different models, and i think i've found out so far it was made in 1898 (Serial is 0360538) and it states also "Wadworth Quality" "10 karat goldfilled" "Pat 5-22-26" inside the cover. I believe that's where the serial number is.
On the movement itself (Sorry if the wording isn't correct, just started research about 30 minutes ago), it shows a 992 in one part (I'm finding 992L, B, etc on sites, but not just a flat out 992.
States Lancaster PA, 21 Jewel on the inside. Also the number 2448741 inside as well. I also see "double roller", "5 positions", and "adjusted" written on the inside.
The chain is engraved at the end with our family surname at the very tip.
So i'm having a hard time actually pinpointing this exact model, and am trying to do it on my own to tell my father. Looking for as much information on this so i can research worth as well, NO I"M NOT selling this, but would be nice to have to give him the information on our family airloom.
ADDED: So if i go by the serial number inside the watch, it is dated to 1932. When i look it up it shows a grade of 922L... however there is no L inside the watch. So again i'm stuck right now on what exactly this is!
