I have inherited this watch from my Grandpa
It is a silver and gold stop watch
There are alot or engravings inside with dates and (I think are times)
It is in perfect working order
I would like to know what the 2 enamelled flags are on the back for
The left one has a crown and a 3 leaved clover
The right one has a crown and the red hand of Ulster
I would be grateful of any more information
