    Default Great great grandfather's pocket watch

    http://www.flickr.com/gp/88167196@N00/40P548

    I would like to thank the members of: NAWCC for the helpful information that was given to me in regards to Benedict Brothers web site. Once again I am back in need of some fine details about this particular pocket watch. On the face it reads:A.C. Benedict & Co. New York
    On the outside cover of one side it has a picture of the House was some mountains in the background by the shore of a small lake or river. Engraved near the hinges there is the date of 11/19/99. Opening that cover stamped inside it reads;[WARRANTED (18)CARAT FINE] and just below that I believe is the serial number: 34087.
    Located on the face of the works the same number exists also the number exists on the inside cover plate with a number 91 below 34087 and a very unusual to me stamp that looks like s&j on top of each other with a 1 on the left side and then a 8 on the right side. I'm struggling to find information about this particular watch and its history. I would greatly appreciate it if somebody could assist me in researching this. Thank you very much and have a wonderful holiday!
