the older watch (1860?) the key wind one is easy to open the case and get the serial numbers etc, but the newer gold one I can't figure out how to open so I can't find manufacturers info on. Just going on the looks/face and style I am able to narrow it down to 1900-1912. and odd thing is the older one (the key wind one) I wound when I got it and for 3 days now has kept pretty accurate time, the newer one (stem wind that I can't open, I also can't set the time so I don't know if it works or not. Perhaps I need to visit a watch repairman. There was a note in the box containing to 2 watches addressed to the executor who sent me the watches, the note was written by my father stating that he had never had the watches cleaned/set and had only told me that as an excuse to keep from giving me the watches. of 28 gold coins I had collected from europe/n africa/middle-east, there were 3 included, 2 english sovereigns (1891 and 1896) and one from Saudi Arabia with no date but was given me by King Saud about 1949. Of the 16 US silver dollars, one given me every xmas in my stocking along with a lump of coal (grandpa's sense of humour), there were 2. I have no complaints as I didn't expect to see any of them. There are some other minor items that the executor is trying to talk my father into allowing her to put in storage in her home to save for me and my brother.
