    The Mido has a Felsa 316 movement:

    The watch looks 1930s to me. It's a really nice piece with a "cushion" case (that would be right for the manufacturing period). A picture of the inside of the case back would be useful (if there are any hallmarks there). Not every watch has a model line name, so no wonder why there were no answers.
    As to the clock... Try the "Clock world" forum- I think you can get more info on your clock there.

    Now, the caseback inside does reveal something. The watch appears to have a solid gold case. As far as I know, Mido can provide information (including year of production) about a vintage watch if you email them the details and serial number (which happens to be on the pictured inner side of the caseback).
    So, write to the manufacturer...
    And in the meantime:
    1. Get it serviced
    2. Buy a strap for it
    3. Wear it in good health!
