    Re: Unknown Watch

    It's a basic (and cheap) early 20th century pin-set cylinder watch that may not belong in this case. The movement is supposed to have a bit that sticks out near the crown side and fits into the edge of the case (to hold it) while the case screw (visible on the pillar plate opposite the crown) secures it from that side. However, instead someone has bodged a metal piece held in place by one of the plate screws. I also notice that there's no dial foot visible in the hole for it, which tells me that either the dial has been damaged or (more likely) is completely new and is held in place by sticky tape or glue.

    That does not look like the right dial unless the movement came from a different watch at some point. But the pinset movement certainly is neat. Perhaps a conversion from a pendant watch around the turn of the 20th century?
