I have an ansonia Pocket watch in excellent condition, still in the original cloth bag and the wooden box with the key. It has the numbers 8698 on the inside of the rear cover. I also have a second pocket watch that has the name The farringdon reg on the face plate with the seconds at the six as well but the are no numbers in the rear plate only the initials W E. What can you tell me about these watches?

Hi Cathy. It's very difficult for us to give information based on description alone. We suggest that you look at the detailed website on the Ansonia company, which has extensive list of models and dates: http://www.antiqueansoniaclocks.com/Ansonia-Clock-Model-Names.php You could also consider contactin a horologist in your local area. For useful links and information see our Question of the Week: http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/discovery-centre-news/horology/
