    Large silver pocket watch

    I have a large (2.5 inches in diameter) open face pocket watch, key wound and set, with a “sweep” second hand. The hallmarks indicate that it is sterling silver with a date of 1877. On the movement it says “Geo. & T. Davison, East side of Grey Street, Newcastle-upon Tyne, Makers to the Admiralty.” Can anyone tell me anything about this piece?

    Newcastle-Upon Tyne is a town or city in England. The Admiralty (an institution that no-longer exists), was the authority that was once in charge of running the British Royal Navy. That's all I can say.
