A broken pocketwatch from 1918 to be exact. My mom found it on a bus in like the 70's. It does not wind or run, and is missing the hand on the smaller part which I assume measures seconds. What do.

I just got a pocket watch myself. It too doesn't work, but it is still neat to carry around.

Cool. My mom gave me two watches from the 1910 era, and my dad gave me a watch from 1862.

Ironically, the one from 1862 is the only one of the three that works.

And now I miss my pocket watch.....

Also if you REALLY want to get it working again it shouldn't cost too much. Just take it to someone who specializes in that kind of stuff and they should be able to tell you whats wrong with it and what needs to be done to get it working again.

I've been using my ipod as my camera for awhile because it's arguably actually better than the only camera we own, and said camera has been lost in the mess of my brother's room.

dude, what was your name before you changed it? logic or something?

and that's a sweet watch, I doubt it will be worth anything but it might be fun restoring it

If you happen upon another one, send it to me.

You should get it working again and then see how much it's worth.

There are people who specialize in repairing watches and spring-powered machines. Locate one of them in your area

I think it would be better to get it evaluated and sell it some collector. Shit goes for a fortune sometimes.

That is stylish, I have a pocketwatch also, they are obviously the greatest of time keeping devices.

Take it to a watch doctor and see if he can fix it.
