Hi Carol. We would suggest that you search the phone book or online for an antique dealer or horologist in your area that specialises in antique clocks & watches.

I have a gold pocket watch marked "Waltham"
on the face with back minute numbers and small red minute numbers plus a small seconds dial. A jeweler thought is was a 1895 watch but it does not look like the watch on the internet. What is your opinion? Thank you, Paul.
