    Confused Tavannes Hunting Gold Pocket Watch,Dennison MOON case, still working, unknown background, help?!?

    Hi,
    I've just come across this Tavannes Hunting Gold Pocket watch, I can't see serial number on mechanism, assume it's underneath? Case looks to be MOON ALD Dennison case 10ct Gold Plates, Roman Numerals, just wound it up and it seems to still be working well,no crystal on face, is this normal?

    Only has few scrawled engravings in case, so we don't know much about it's history.(Assume they are repair marks)

    Looking for any info re year of manufacture, info re serial number on case (605324), any help would be greatly appreciated so we can care for it appropriately, keen to know more about it, we are watch novices

    Thanks,
    Peter, New Zealand
