Hi Dennis. It is difficult for us to provide information based on a description. You should either contact a horologist or horology society or use some of the many online resources available for doing research on clocks & watches. Information and useful links can be found in our Question of the Week on Horology: http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/discovery-centre-news/horology/
