    Default Pocket Ben, Westclox

    I am mainly a clock person, but a family member just showed me well preserved Westclox Pocket Ben, of which I have no knowledge. He (35 years old) says it belonged to his great, great grandfather, which would make the watch turn of the XIX XX century. Is this correct and is this a good item to collect?

    Default Pocket Ben, Westclox (RE: giorgio)

    Hi Giorgio, Westclox Pocket watches were date stamped as to the month and year of assembly. Look closely at the back plate after popping off the back. Westclox got started at around the turn of the century.
