    Nice piece, Civilman! Is it a key for winding a mantel clock?


    Hey Gypsy--don't worry. This thread will be here when you unpack I'd love to see the rest of your rusty crusty watches.
    I'm positive BB....I spent about an hour looking up Ansonia Mantle's,but I still can't locate that particular key for a date.
    Nice work, Civilman. I have a mantle clock wind key and some fobs to post too, but I'm gonna space it out... I found a pocket watch key when I was a newbie and tossed it out because I didn't know what it was I'm hoping someone will post one on here sooner or later.

    Re: The TreasureNet WATCH and CLOCK Show!

    OK, you said "dug" watches, not necessarily MDed. I dug this one in a little dump just a few minutes walk from our house. I love it's patina and it is really hefty and has a nice feel in your hand. I can find no markings or names on it although the face is a bit busted. I guessed it was a stopwatch due to its offset stem.

    Nice thread, BB.
    Cheers and HH

    Re: The TreasureNet WATCH and CLOCK Show!

    Nice Watches Michiganne and Fisher!  I love 'em!  Michiganne, have you unscrewed the back to the watch?  Somtimes there's a brand, symbol, or serial number in there.  The big pocket watch (on the right) in my first photo I was able to date to 1894 with the help of the brand marking and serial number in the back.

    Re: The TreasureNet WATCH and CLOCK Show!

    BB: No, I haven't tried to unscrew the watch back. I can see where it would separate but can't get enough purchase on the smooth watch to turn anything. How did you unscrew yours? Would you guess this is a stopwatch not a watch due to the stem position?

    Nothing in this little dump is very old so I would guess this watch isn't either but who knows?

    HH
    A little 3 in 1 oil in the groove all the way around the rim (make sure it doesn't run out where you'll lose your grip on it in trying to turn it afterwards. It'll also possibly make the brass appear darker and give it a wet look, so to avoid this make sure it goes only in the seam as much as possible). Then lefty loosie! Make sure the watch is face down--just in case the cogwheels are all loose and ready to fall out. Then clean the grooved inner lip of the back before you screw it back on. Mine came open fairly easily, but I would imagine some might be a pain after being in the ground so long.

    I'd guess stopwatch as well--I don't recall seeing that orientation on any normal watches. The watch looks to be late 19th c. or at the Very Latest early 20th. It could've been an heirloom left in a pocket and thrown out with a tattered blazer. You never know. the fact that it was complete when you found it is perhaps a clue--I've found only one complete pocket watch ever, and lots of assorted pieces. Thank you so much for posting it--and good luck if you try to open it up.

    Re: The TreasureNet WATCH and CLOCK Show!

    Romeo and Captn,

    Those are some INCREDIBLY FINE watch finds!!

    Jim,

    I like your rusty crust watches. Looks like most of the bits and pieces I've ever dug

    Roy,

    That is a GREAT attic find--I love it!


    Funkman,

    Nice work! Thanks for posting your finds--they ROCK!




    Each of these watches tells a story, I'm sure. These were items treasured in their day much more than a common penny or a dime because of their function and utility. Some are clearly works of art--like the gold filled and silver ones--and also the HUGE mantel clock of Modern Miner. I'm REALLY enjoying seeing them all here. Now, Bring On the Wind-Keys! Bring on the FOBS!!

    Re: The TreasureNet WATCH and CLOCK Show!

    P.S.--I'm wondering how many of us have dug that same square plate from a clock like we've seen in the center of Funkman's photo...I've dug several, and each of my buddies has found one.  Seems like the most common clock in the country LOL.  That's one of those pieces that when you dig it--you have no clue, but then after ya dig a few of 'em ya figure it out.  I'll try and get a photo of mine and stick it in this reply.

    BB,

    It probably was the most common clock. The circular back case on the left has engraved "Waterbury Clock Co" and the one on the right has no company name but I did find a patented date of Jan 15th 1878.
