    The people in here who know about these things will need to see a picture of the movement to help you. Its possible that Wray was the name of a jewellers. It seems to be an Irish name originally, so there are no doubt plenty of Wrays in the US as well as Britain. This one has a nice history page and gallery of old photos:

    If you open the back - it likely unscrews in this type of case - then take a photo of the movement we can likely help you.

    It absolutely looks like an unscrew type of back. Take it in to a jeweler and see if they can help you with it.
