Hello! It is difficult for us to make an identification based on that description. We would recommend that you approach a local horology society or antiques expert, who can look at the watch itself. Best of luck!

Hi James. It is difficult for us to make an identification based on a description alone. We recommend that you approach a local horology society or antiques expert, who can look at the watch itself. See our Horology Question of the Week for information on doing further research on your own or finding a horologist: http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/discovery-centre-news/horology/
