    I don't see a way to wind it. Makes me wonder if it's actually a compass instead of a watch

    Thank you everyone for all the comments.

    Sorry for the slow response with the holiday and home improvement projects I am just getting back to this post.

    I have to agree. I believe it may be a compass as well. There is no dial to wind. There is a hole on the bottom that looks like some type of key probably opened it up.

    It doesn't have anywhere along the edges like a watch has to pop it open.

    I'd love to open it up see who made it and clean it up a bit if I can.

    Don't want to destroy it so a Jewler may need to open it up.

    I did look online and found that the compass would have been attached to a chain as part of a pocket watch.

    A lot of them are 15 karat gold and from the looks of it up against my 14kt wedding band it very well may be 15 karat looks like the same color almost.

    It's very heavy and not rolled gold. I've found enough plated and rolled gold items over the years to tell the difference.

    Thad, I came up a few silvers shy of 100 fty with 98 and did not get out over the weekend. I should still reach my quota of a 100 in December.

    And 50 Indians is another quota of mine I believe I am around 45 not sure I will meet that one.

    This find was a nice way to cap off a nice season. Hope to be back with a few more finds before the season ends and the weather freezes over.

    Thanks,

    Jer

    That’s freaking cool. I’m definitely on the verge of pulling the banner lever. Does that watch have any markings?

    Thank you for the comments guys.

    I tried to open it up last night but was not successful.

    There is a hole in the bottom and I actually think the winder is broken off and this still may be a baby pocket watch.

    I did weigh it last night 22 grams. I will take it to a jewler and have them pop it open if they can.

    I will update the post once I get it open and can shed some further light on the make and model.

    Thanks,

    Jer

    Nice job. Just remember the lead/copper etc. is not junk, it's a rebate for batteries. Could that have been a lady's watch? From the size and the place to attatch a chain it might have been. Seems the Lady's back in the day had them pined on their blouses. Good luck.
