Alpa was originally in the business of manufacturing precision watch parts (the company name was "Pignons S.A." which translates to "pinions" or gears).

www.nawcc.org - great organization. I let my membership lapse, though. But I donated to help them build their museum back when I was wealthy.

Um----thanks Bill! Ummm Joe---I was attempting to type after the third martini. Rarely works. I DO have a drinking problem...two hands, one mouth! Ahhhhh--maybe I'll just settle down to "a" glass of Cab tonite..
Thanks again for the correction Bill...

well, i just finished looking at several hundred watches on ebay and none are exactly the same as mine.
there are a couple that are very similar but do not have the third circle of numbers (13-14-15 etc).
the close looking ones have asking prices in the 300 dollar range.

could my watch be worth that much?

Old precision pocket watches are like good older cameras, that's what appeals to us "tool-guys" - LOL. I love just opening my great grandfather's Elgin and seeing all those gears and jeweled pivots.
It's not a rare-collectors item, but it's a family heirloom anyway.

Thanks joe,
I have one photo of my great-grandfather from the late 1800's, can't see the watch in it though. Here's a shot of the insides (the watch, not grampa- LOL).

Reviving the thread in similar spirit to the recently continued wristwatches thread.
