19th Century Silver Pocket Watch
19th Century Silver Pocket Watch

I know very little about 19th century key wind pocket watches. I took this watch in as partial trade for a very expensive firearm that I had in stock. ​For starters it's a key wind with no key so I have no idea if it works or not. Secondly,it needs a crystal. Having said all that I do however love the inscription.​ It reads "​John B.Armstrong XIT Ranch Texas.  The dial face says ​American Watch Co. ​and the back says Waltham,Mass with P.L Bartlett ​in script. The watch front cover is stamped  Warrented Coin Silver *L262  and the back cover just *L262. The chain appears to be original to the watch. A pretty neat piece of the ​Texas history.
