  1. I came across a pretty watch in a 2nd hand store and got it for my granddaughters to play with like a lot of their jewelry. But some said I need to have it checked out before letting them pack it off and lose it. Well I have tried and came up with a lot of neat info but means nothing to me! Can someone help me if I post a picture or words & number's? thank you in advance.

    1. You can send me a photo through Etsy or by email. If it’s a Hamilton Watch I can probably identify it.
