17 years married today, but we've been together for 26 years. (the wife forbids pictures so don't even ask, happy wife doesn't get half my stuff)!
Made in 1900 and so far still is keeping great time.

Very cool. I love a pocket watch

Classy. I like it. It might need a matching flask.

Very, very nice. Something to take great pride in ownership in.

Did a friend of the previous owner bring that back from 'Nam?

Uhmmm, errrr, hmmmm, what is it chambered for and how do you load it? Never seen one of those at the range.

Just awesome!!

Just out of curiosity, but does one polish a watch like that? Or is it something that should simply be left alone like an old gun. I'd just have a hard time not buffing it.

Very nice! Happy wife = happy life.

Do most pocket watches of that vintage have the backdoor to look at the inner workings?

That's very sharp!

There are different types of cases, this one is called a "hunter" model. Then there are railroad models, most of those I believe are lever set movements meaning you take the crystal off and pull out a lever to adjust it.

Nice, I've got a couple Elgin watches. A 1903 B.W. Raymond (Railroad watch) and a 1910 commercial model. Forgot which one. The former keeps time to within about 30 seconds a week or better. The other one not so much. Neat pieces of hardware that are still ticking over 100 years later!
