Case info does not help in dating a watch, A movement serial number helps greatly.

It's rarely possible to give any kind of definitive valuation without seeing a watch (pocket or wrist) in person, but it sounds like you have an inexpensive pocket watch that was probably made in the 1960s, less likely made in the 1970s or 1950s. The use of the term "antimagnetic" on the watch, as opposed to "17 jewels," suggests that the watch is powered by a 1-3 jewel pin lever movement, rather than a more expensive movement. These movements can keep quite good time, but they are not valued by watch collectors unless the rest of the watch is of compelling interest.

In terms of value, your pocket watch has more value as a piece of jewelry than as a vintage timepiece. Most watch collectors would not be particularly interested in your watch. In the United States, I've seen similar watches, in running condition, sell for $5-10 at vintage watch fairs. Around where I live (the Northeast), as a piece of jewelry, your watch may be worth twice that but not more. I cannot speak to pricing in other parts of the country or internationally.

I have a continental 17 jewels watch and it looks


mcdevito75 here, You can try online at Continental watch.com However the numbers on the movement itself count the most, numbers on the watch face and back cover help. HINT!! -- If your Continental Watch has thick hands It"s most likely before 1965, if your watch has thin hands it"s most likely after 1965. Best bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can guide you too a shop that will know if they don"t. Also, you can check with any Antique shops in your area too.

Have a waltham pocket watch in an illinois case enameled dial with a recessed seconds dial at bottom with a numeric 6. seconds on face also. can't find year or pic of this watch


If you go to the web site "www.antique-pocket-watch.com/waltham-pocket-watch.html", you will find information about Waltham watches and if you read the serial number off the movement (open the back and read it off the back plate), you may be able to find out the year of manufacture.

How find serial number on ~1910 hamilton pocket watch?


The serial number is usually engraved on the movement. If you open the back of the watch, you should be able to see it.

I looked at the Hamilton pocket watch site (in might be helpful if you visit the site, simply type "hamiltonpocketwatches.com" into your search engine and your will be able to examine photos of a number of movements).

The position and size of the number varies but it shouldn't take to long to find. One of the pictures I found impossible to see the number but the rest I found, although sometimes you had to look quite carefully.

Antique Hamilton pocket watch how to open? I unscrewed the face and see a notch at the bottom and a hinge on top of face. I tried prying upward at notch but it did not want to open. I was applying enough...


Pull the wind knob out...it takes a firm pull on mine. You will hear it click, then you have room to pull the movement out towards the hinge. Then close when done, and push the wind handle back in.

At one oclock the lever is pulled out about 1/4" then you can set the time, when finished, push the lever back in.

Hope this helps...george
