An elderly friend of the family is interested in selling this timepiece and asked if I could help determine some information about it. My upfront apologies - like many posting, I have very little knowledge about these things so I'm helping the experts here can give us a leg up before he pawns it off. It was acquired in a barter for someone who owed him money many decades ago. We are also trying to get some information on the inscription on it. I realize we don't have photos of the interior - none of us were brave enough to try and open it :) We will take it to a jeweler and get photos at a later time.
Thanks in advance to any knowledgeable folks who can lend their attention to it for a few minutes.
