    Can anybody identify this pocket watch?

    I received this watch a while ago. I can only tell you of the inscriptions inside:

    "Ctin Charpier" the number "9584" I believe it's a French watch. The frint opens to reveal the watch face and the back opens to reveal the inscription I just mentioned. After this it opens to reveal the inner mechanisms.

    I would like to know if it is worth anything and if so... how much. Thanks

    Mike

    Please read our sticky notes about identification and valuation. We don't do valuations here except in the most general way..is it worth fixing or not.
    The pictures are not clear enough for me to read the dial, and we need a picture of the movement to have any hope of identification.
    The watch might be a Celestin Charpier which would be a Swiss manufacturer. Haven't seen too many of these, to be honest.
    It probably dates to before 1920 but I can't be sure at this point.
