Every time I go to my parents’ house, I wind up playing in my mom’s jewelry box. She inherited a lot of pieces from my grandmother so it’s like a trip down memory lane when we play dress up. Resting among brooches and earrings were two pocket watches that my Nana bought at an antique shop years ago.
Since they aren’t family heirlooms, my mom had no problem letting me take one home. She even gave me a long, gold chain after I mentioned how my co-worker wore one as a necklace.
I still need to look into the American Waltham Watch Company but from my initial research, this particular pocket watch is from 1882. Have you transformed any old pieces of jewelry or other antiques?
