double hall marked with a lion and a what looks like a skull and cross bones and a sickle
with some thing inside it and a mark with R O J E on the back of the watch the thing
that holds the fly wheel (a large one)plus the fast and slow ajuster is in the shape of a
ships bell below that the tooling is done in the shape of a crown the city in which it was
made is Manchester UK (also the face is white ceramic with only two hands and roman numerals also wound up with a key and will run for 3 days there is also a diamond in

Hi Chris,

You did a good job of uploading the photos. I need to see a photo of the movement more in focus as well as a photo of the hallmarks on the case.

Cheers,

Wayne

I am afraid my camera is not that good for close ups even on macro


sorry! I tried a few but came out of focus.

Expert:  Wayne replied 3 years ago.

Hi Chris,

Without being able to see the hall marks I can only give you a time frame for this watch. This is a chain driven Fusee circa 1820. Similar watches sell for 150-250 Pounds at auction and Insurance value is 500 Pounds. These are collectible; however, the market has gone down a little from the 1990s. I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Wayne
