    Looks like a typical English verge fusee for the Turkish market. The Tompion regulator and pillar design would probably date it to the mid-1700s.

    A close-up photo of the markings inside the inner case can date it more exactly.

    beautiful watch!! Edward prior was born in 1800 and died 1868 so this was made in that time period. it's a verge, quadruple cased and as said above a close up of the hallmarks would help date it more exactly
