      I had one similar to yours that had little round calendars inside the case from around the 1890's. The calendars were from the store where the watch had been repaired. Mine was also a key wind.

      looks like it might be a fusee movement have to pop the dust cover( with the winding hole) open to look at movement,..if so has a tiny tiny chain like a bicycle chain in it that helps it run more accurately,.. the old mainsprings from before the 1850s weren't very even in the amount of force when they wound down so they had a chain around a flattened cone so the force remained steady,..ok my description sucks but the fact they made a hand made chain sooo soo tiny,..almost looks like a cable its soo small,and its realy made like a bicycle chain so even more amazing . take care of it and dont wind it too tight the chain is very fragile,..and probably 150 years old
