Group of 2 vintage watch case openers that were given away by the
Keystone Watch Case Co. They are pocket watch shaped. They
were supposed to be used as watch fobs. 37mm tall.
These are different from most openers. The one is marked that it was
given away by Keystone, not by a jeweler. The other opener has a been
hand engraved with a bird and nest scene on one side and a floral scene
on the other. It almost looks like a name has been removed from it. This
may have been done by a Keystone employee or by a jeweler, either way it
is a nice job.
Vintage token that was given away by Elgin with a watch or
movement. It is marked GM Wheeler and the serial number stamped in is
38,065, which would be from 1868. It measures 1 3/16" wide and appears
to be made of coin silver. There is some wear and some pitting.
Vintage Ansonia "Bee" lithographed tin that was the original
"box" that they were sold in. It stands 2" tall and 3" wide. The clocks
just barely fit in these, but they do fit. It has a picture of the
Brooklyn factory on the bottom.
Nice condition with some nicks and small dents. It is marked Patented
April 23 1878. I would guess it is from the 1880s. The finish is a
little dark, it is not a bright colored tin.
Vintage bank with a built-in New Haven clock. These banks were
given out by banks to children to teach them how to save. The clock
runs and keeps time [it is basically a New Haven pocket watch]. The bank
measures 3 3/4" tall. It was issued by the Reading National Bank of
Reading Pa. It was made by the Milwaukee Timesaver Co. It comes with a
key, the key may be home made but it works. You can remove the clock
from the bank. The bank is brass with the original off-white enamel
Vintage alarm clock that was made in Switzerland in the 1920s or 30s.
Instead of a normal alarm, it plays music when the alarm goes off. It
stands 3 5/8" tall. Clock runs, keeps time and the alarm [music] part
works perfectly. The case has a peach colored enamel finish with floral
decals. Some chips in the enamel. It plays 2 songs when the alarm goes
off, Old Folks At Home and Carry Me Back To Old Virginia. Very good
overall condition. There is no alarm except for the music.
Vintage watch case opener that was given away by the Waltham Watch Co
in 1950 to celebrate their 100th anniversary. 40mm long. There is some
light surface rust that makes it look bad in the photo, but it really is
in nice condition.
Vintage watch case opener that was given away by the New England
Watch Co. It was supposed to be used as a fob. There is some minor
surface rust that makes it look poor in the photo, but it is actually in
good condition. 41mm long. Nice condition.
watch case opener tool that is stamped with the South Bend logo. It
was mixed in with some watch parts that I bought at an antique show over
the weekend. It measures 1 1/2" long. Steel. There is some minor surface
Gubelin travel clock with alarm. It has a 15 jewel Swiss windup movement. It comes in a small folding case that has a red leather covering. It opens up and the lid folds under to let the clock stand up. This is very similar to the LeCoultre
clock. The case may have been made by the same company. The dial is marked Looping and the movement is marked Gubelin. The
alarm hand and hour hand are off and only are being held in place by the minute hand. It will run when you shake it. There is some spotting on the front cover that could be touched up with a red marker. There is no back cover
for the movement. I guess there was one and it is lost.
