Dials were larger while the cases were made to be less of a focal point...

looking straight at a watch from the 60's, you will many times notice that not too much of the case is visible.

Some companies (as with the Gruen Watch Company), even lost rocords to fire or other natural disaster. I am sure they had no idea that their timepieces would someday be collected.

There are several ways to get an idea of when your watch was made.

"New" refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, and "Used" refers to an item that has been used previously.

I've been looking for a birthyear watch for a while now, especially with all this talk flying around. Not real enthused about what I've been seeing recently but hey, half the fun is the hunt. This is probably the most common question watch collectors have.Sometimes it is easy to answer, and sometimes it is impossible.I am slowly adding serial number tables to this site. With the exception of BULOVA, the numbers on the inside and outside of the CASE ITSELF are ONLY for identification purposes - they mean nothing.Serial number records are available for many of the old pocket watch companies like AM Waltham, Elgin, South Bend etc. The number you need is the serial number stamped on the MOVEMENT (i.e the inner workings).The dial and crystal go right to the edge and the lugs are smaller.
