I offered to post this on here for Dick Ziebell. He had two watches stolen on Friday at the Valparaiso regional this past August. The watches are pictured below(photos posted with his permission) but here are the descriptions 1. Waltham SW 1857 Nickel dmk signed "Excelsior" on barrel bridge, "Made only for Howard & Co Fifth Avenue New York" on balance cock, and signed "At Waltham Mass" on main plate. SN 842873. 2. Unusual design Appleton, Tracy & Co(possibly once a chronodrometer).
