Do you need help Google-ing how to find info on your pocket watch? Let Vermillion Enterprises help you.
How to Find Info About Your Pocket Watch
Here are a few tips to Google information about your pocket watch:
- Always input the serial number from the pocket watch movement (the “mechanism” of the watch).
- Never use the serial number from the case or any other part.
- Always select the correct manufacturer. Typically found stamped on the watch movement or dial.
- If you cannot find it, you may have a “private label” watch or it may not be American-made.
- If the serial number includes a letter, enter it along with the number when using the lookup feature.
- Many pocket watch case backs screw off. Others may require a dull wide blade to pry or pop the cover. Be careful not to scratch or damage the movement.
- Understand that many companies did not keep accurate or complete records.
- As always, if you still can’t find info – bring it into Vermillion Enterprises. We will be glad to look at it for you and help you determine it’s value.

Higher quality (and therefore more valuable) pocket watches tend to have much higher attention to detail, so take a look at the adjustments, gears and jewels inside your watch. These make up the calibrations inside your pocket watch, with a higher amount indicating a higher quality timepiece/pocket watch.
