My great grandmother's pocket watch from circa 1885 - 130 years old and it still works!

I'm reliably informed this is from the early years of the 20th Century.






And one I actually wear from mid 1940s (?)

Well this was my oldest watch - 1946 Tissot Bumper, but at 30mm it was too small and not getting any wear so I moved it on to buy another Seiko.

This currently my oldest, from '67.

1926 Elgin






Unknown date but I would say late teens / early 1920's on this one



Late 1930's / early 1940's

This Elgin belonged to my great grandfather. It is more than 100 years old. Thanks to IWW, it still runs and keeps good time.

about 1790. Case probably not original.

I found crappy old photos in my almost forgotten photobucket account :)




What's it called in English, "verge fusee?"

My oldest would be a family heirloom from around the turn of the century.

To keep this on topic for the Japanese discussion forum, my oldest would be this Seiko Empire pocket watch from the late 20's early 30's.



My next oldest would be the Seiko Navy WWII era watch from the very early 40's.



Of a similar age would also be this Citizen 26 Cut Balance.



Exactly dating many of these early watches is difficult as the info on these is quite hard to come by.
