Description
Ok so Ive done a massive amount of research on this item.

It is a 1910-1911 15 Jewel ELGIN pocket watch. It is close to the size of a silver dollar maybe a tad bit smaller. I opened the back cover and the item looks flawless. Inside the watch it reads

Elginnatl Watch Co. 15 Jewels the serial # is 15595472

This item goes contain gold. The arms on the clock are either 14 or 24k and inside the watch some of the wheels and sprockets are gold as well. In total there is 15 precious metals. I was able to find out this was from 1910-1911 based on the google search i did on the serial number. I found out this watch could be worth anywhere from 100-500$ depending on the shape. From what i can see it has no physically damage. It will not wind up because of a chip inside the mechanism. Ive been told a professional can fix this for a pretty low price. Either way have the chance to own a real piece of history. If you collect old watches then this is the one you dont want to miss. Ive had this piece for a while now but i wanted to really research to make sure it was not a million dollar watch or something crazy lol. If you were to buy this i could see no issues with getting 150$ as it stands. If you require more details or pictures let me know. Also this item will be mailed via priority mail in bubble wrap. 48 hours after the auction ends. I have one other great watch you may want to look at, im listing it right after this one

P.S. I think the size is 12-15 whatever that means. Im pretty positive this was a man's watch.

My grandson was a preemie too. We stuffed the arms & legs of his snowsuit with his receiving blankets. He looked like a big marshmallow, lol! But he was warm!

I totally love this snowsuit. My granddaughter is small for her age and is 4 months-do you think I have a chance it would fit? Does it run true to size or a little bit bigger? If it is a bit bigger I have a chance!! And I would be SO happy. Thanks!

You are great! Thanks so much it sure does!!
debbiegardiner33 that is small but my full term daughter was 5 11oz and my granddaughter, also full term was 6ibs. Don't worry she will catch up quickly so my advise is- don't buy too many preemie clothes! Happy Holidays to all! And thanks again Kaye!

Serious the photos just don't do it justice!
Thanks again!!

I REALLY think it is beautiful the way you have shown it. But I do know what you mean, it seems my photos never show the real beauty of the outfit either. I'll go check out your jewelry asap! Thanks again, be back tomorrow to bid!
