Family Pocket Watches

The pocket watches of our ancestors are a treasure. To hold in our hands today, something that generations ago our family members held in theirs, is an amazing experience. In January, 2017 I took three watches to a watchmaker in Fullerton, California to be cleaned, oiled, and repaired as needed. They were able to restore two of the three watches. The oldest of the watches belonged to Charles Herbert Vincent I (1848 - 1920) and while it is a beautiful Swiss watch, I was told it was beyond repair.
