Rarely see one of these anymore. One from my collection of pocket watches. This ladies model is 1 1/2 inch in diameter.

This is really neat, Walter. Excellent job! I especially like the second photo of the inner workings.

Thanks, all. Here's part of the engraving inside the outer case lid.

This is beautiful! I'm jealous.

Is it a family heirloom or do you just collect them? I also do genealogy and am always looking for family items to salvage.

No, unfortunately no heirlooms. I have about a dozen I've picked up here and there. This one I found at a pawn shop last month for $85. Doesn't run, but a beautiful piece, nontheless. Very difficult to find anyone to repair them.
