I have a pocket stop watch with the inscription McInnes Brothers Watch & Clock makers 8 Buchanan St Glasgow. No.26323 (Swiss made) engraved "To H.R.H. The Prince of Wales."
It belonged to Edward and given to my Grandfather when he bought his car. Do you know any more of its history?

That's an exciting story, Jim! Unfortunately we don't have any specific information about the watch in your collection. Might you try exploring the websites of organisations like the National Watch and Clock Collectors Inc, in the States? They have detailed articles about the history of watch-making, including reference to individual specimens. http://www.nawcc.org/
