    Welcome to the forum. Please take pictures of the watch movement inside, as well as close up pictures of all markings of the inner case back.

    We don't do valuations here (against forum rules for a lot of good reasons), but as mentioned, try to post a movement picture and we can help better identify. Once you have the knowledge, you can better search the internet to research current value based on your location, etc..

    Looks like a Swiss pocket-watch with stopwatch feature, looks to be made for the European market, Germany or France, and by the shape of the case and the dial layout I'd guess from about 1890s-1910s
    Pure guess work of course.

    Wow, a repeater and chrono. Should have guessed.

    That is rather nice.

    Sorry but what do you mean? I am really not a watch person! Would love to know more!

    Nice watch, great heirloom.

    Chronograph means the watch can be used to time elapsed secs using a start/stop feature.
    The watch is also a quarter repeater which means, that when the slide is operated, the watch
    will chime the hours and quarter hours.

    This linked youtube video shows a watch like yours in operation, a video is worth a thousand words.
