    Need some help with this watch piece... Very puzzled with this one

    OK The pictures are below... what you see is what you get... no marks of any kind found on the inside.. On face as you can see from the picture it reads "Oxford" "Shock resistant" and "Dura Star AntiMagnetic" also down at the six "Swiss Made" Cant seem to find anything online that resembles.... anyone able to help me out with info... age... worth perhaps? THANKS

    Unfortunately your watch is a relic, it is missing most of the clock work.
    It was originaly a cheap watch with a very basic pin pallet movement and
    even in pristine condition would be of little interest value wise.
    Probably dates from the fifties...sorry to be so blunt.

    It looks like a odd mix! I dont quite understand the pics... the dial looks like it fits into the case... but, what is left of the movement is sticking out the back of the case!

    I have also never seen a case like that? The lugs look like they are welded/stuck on! Would also guess 50s/60s... Worth? The remains of a movement that does not fit into the case... cost of postage would cover it!

    The dial has some nice detail to finish on a positive!
