    I started collecting pocket watches about a year ago. Honestly, I know nothing about pocket watches. They remind me of my grandfather and I think they make great conversational pieces. The thing that is driving me nuts though is that I cannot get this thing opened! Does anyone know how to open this beautiful piece of History? ;)

      Thanks much Guys!!! You can set the time by the stem. I still cant get it opened though.

      The back of the Watch reads:
      BUREAU OF SHIPS
      U.S NAVY
      COMPARING WATCH
      N 5710- 1941
