I am not sure of the origin of this watch. It was in a box of things that belonged to my great grandfather, I dont even recognize the initial engraved on the back. This piece is key wound, though I do not have the key, and am not sure if it works. The glass is missing, but the metal piece that would hold it is still intact. There is no marking stating what type of gold it is, but there is no tarnish to represent age. There is some carving detail on the piece, the most intricate being the mountain scene on the front. I am just wondering what this could be worth. I dont know that I would want to sell it, but would like to know what I may have.
