Tonight I got into the safe (for insurance reasons) and pulled out a bunch of things that I inherited from my grandparents after they died. Some of which were old silver and gold coins, a solid 24K gold necklace from my grandmother, some family heirlooms, collectible coins, rolls of wheaties and a few other things of value...
Anyway... I discovered in the bottom of the box two old pocket watches made of gold. One was made by Elgin and I dated it back to 1909 based off the serial number. I determined the value on the internet and recorded it in my insurance records. It was my great-great grandfathers pocket watch when he worked as a railroad conductor. It's been in the family for sometime now.
There is a second pocket watch I found as well, but I can not seem to find any information about it at all. It appears to be solid gold, but there are only a few identifiable marks on it. On the inside of the cover it says:
Delemont Watch Co
On the same side I can barely make out a possible 1919 date etched into it, but I can't see it for sure. It's too small and too light.
The clock itself has the small words "Princeton-G"
On the internal workings in the back it says:
unadjusted (on the top)
Seventeen (on the bottom)
and then it has the company name again.
I've Googled the heck out of it, but can't find squat about it. I don't know squat about pocket watches and I want to determine the value of it, and when it was made.
Any help would be appreciated
