The wodden box is 3 3/4" wide 3 3/8" deep and 2 5/8" deep with the brass anchor on top with brass lock hinge in fromt and two brass clasps on each corner. The box is lined in red velvet like material on the inside.
The watch is in a 2" glass magnafying sphere, with a 7/8" brass band around the middle. In the top of the face of the watch are the words "SUPERIOR SHIP TIMEKEEPER" just under these words written in long hand are two lines of words I can not make out even with a magnafying glass. just under the pin in the middle holding the hands of the watch is a Train Steam engine. The hour numbers are in roman numbers.
On the see thru backside of the watch the word "17 Jewels" can be seen on one of the parts and a "+ - " can be seen on another part. I do not know how to wind it up but I can move the hands around and it has a second hand.
I purchased the watch in Saudi Arabia some years back. Can someone identify this watch for me, I just bought it on a whim, I thought it looked kool and would look good sitting on my desk. Does it have any value other than a conversation peace?
