    Help! Pocket Watch Case Identification!....Looks old....

    I hoping that someone may know more information about this pocket watch case, maybe its relative age...

    On the writing on the back it says...

    "Manufactured by the Asonia Watch Co." "New York United States of America" "Patented April 17th, 1888... Trademark A ...F"

    Although the patent date was stamped 1888 the Ansonia Clock Co made dollar watches watches from 1904 to 1929. In 1930 the company was sold to a Russian company.

    Here’s what was said about one of these in a previous thread: Ansonia Pocket Watch
    The S F markings are for adjusting the speed.

    Thanks yeah I figured it was cheaper end for the time period and probably circa 1910... The stuff I find down here on the border is usually in the 1910's.
