    Although the pics are gold colored on my monitor, the case appears to be sliver from the markings. It is a beautiful piece but I do not recognize it. The "fast/slow" make me think it is American from somewhere in the late 1800s.

    The real experts may know more.

    Oh, the stand is beautiful too!!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I am not familiar with that movement either, but wanted to mention that maybe the pinion for winding and setting the hands may not be the same size. I have plenty of watches where I need two keys...

    It's Swiss and appears to have a cylinder escapement. Also Swiss hallmarks on the case.
