Watch was passed down on my wifes side, when I first picked it up and gave it a wind it started right up. I let it run It kept perfect time and I actually enjoyed listening to it. Im new to pocket watches and thought it was interesting. I believe I snapped the winding mechanism when prying it open. I should have read up on how to open it first, but wanted to give you guys a shot of the insides. the number is 16158433. It says 23 jewels adjusted in gold as well as Vanguard, Waltham Mass. Very interesting but im literally kicking myself for not doing some research before attempting to open it. Watch survived all those years with apparent constant use for many of its early years and I break it in a matter of minutes. Oh well enjoy....
