    Need Info - Large Pocket watch Chronograph I.D help !!

    Picked up this nice watch from a seller off E-bay, watch runs, needs 1 center sweep Seconds hand , 2 sub hands , I will service it and have it buffed up, looks sweet, any help Identifying it would be nice, this is a BIG watch at over 50mm+. .900 silver , I don't know the jewel count, I would venture in the 15 jewel mark, and looks to be made around late 1890s - 1920s.
    When I receive the watch I'll post proper pictures.

    It looks like the mechanism for the chronograph function has been removed. It does not look like a crown pusher, has the case been switched? Hard to see from the pictures. As the dial is not aligned, either it is loose or the movement is not aligned with and connected to the crown. Might be a big job.

    yes, looks bad, I have asked the seller to cancel the transaction, I too can't see how this this is working, it is indeed missing lots of bits, I just did not notice in my excitement.
    DANG !!!!!!!
