Found this watch at Estate sale. I do not know anything about pocket watches, just liked it. The name on the inside is Wm. Batson, London. No date. There are some hallmarks on the inside of it. You can see them in the one of pictures.

    Just got it there was no key. Looks like it will run but scared to mess with it.
