Would just like to know what some of the "experts" here might be able to tell me about this watch. It has a gold case and is not a regular "big" pocket watch. Has a screw on back. Inside the SN # 19903461 , 15 jewels. I found the watch buried in the mud about 1954, in our backyard near Dallas, Texas. My Dad took it to a watch shop got it all cleaned and it runs perfectly. He carried it for "me" many years while I served multiple tours in Vietnam, 60-70's. It will still run perfectly, but I don't carry it. Have it just wrapped in cotton, in a safe. One source I looked at leads me to believe that it was (maybe) manufactured about 1916-1917. I am a disabled Vet, getting on in years and was just wondering what this watch might mean, especially to my kids. Appreciate any information, advice. Thanks.
