I am probably not the only pocketwatch collector that feels a little “guilty” for acquiring a collection without thinking to get the “wife-in-your-life” one for her to add to her jewelry drawer? And since my mother just passed away on May 1, 2020 after living for 94 years in the Elgin, Illinois area for her entire life, I wanted to share this watch. This grade 118, 11-jewel Elgin with serial number 5,909,526 came in this nice 3.5 X 4.5 inch size wooden box with purple felt lining. The Keystone (#2384965) GF case is in near mint condition and even has room for some initials to be added, Not! And Happy Mother’s Day to all those women out there taking care of grandchildren and children. Brad Maisto, KY Floral #44 Secretary

So sorry for your loss, Brad. What a nice way to share the memory - with a beautiful little Elgin watch. Thank you for sharing it.

So sorry for your loss. my mother would have been 99 on May 1. I picked up 2 Waltham 1872's, the Park Road arrived yesterday, both run but sadly, no cases. Ordered a minute hand from Marty that should be here this week for the Royal. For some reason, I have a thing for these orphans. Maybe after this pandemic is over I can buy a cased version.
