Here is some detail on the watch in my profile image: It is an antique pocket watch by George Charle of London, circa 1790. Made for the Turkish market. Tortoise-shell outer cover. Pair case in sterling silver. White enamel dial. Turkish numerals. Beetle and poker hands. Bulls-eye crystal. Ornate verge fusee chain escapement. Fully signed and numbered movement. Key wind. Hallmarked inner case identifying the maker, year of manufacture, silver grade, and assay office. I purchased this from Solvang Antique Center in Solvang, CA in the mid-90's.
