    Thanks Pat for the help. I just finished reading the article that was mentioned with Jon Edwards on the repair work done on the Kincaid watch. I am hoping one day soon, i can perhaps hold the Kincaid watch in my hand, i think Gary would let me do that much. He is a nice man.

    The difference is after a 100 years the pocket watches still run and keep accurate time, the cell phone will be long gone.

    What is a civil war watch

    I agree with Richie on this one. My great, great gf fought in the civil war. My brother has his watch. But there is no proof that he actually used that watch when he was serving in the Civil war.

    Appleton tracy

    Recent example. My Elgin BW Raymond with a winding indicator, i think it said some thing like 300 dollars or less. I know that value is way off, from what i have seen them sold for.

    Appleton tracy

    I find the pocket watch database is way out in values. Looked at a few of mine and it was way off.

    A friend's pocket watch

    Applies to watches and clocks, a myth, over wound. Nice heirloom. If it were mine it would be serviced and worn.
