I have one or two.  They are old and cool....but let me tell you, one wrong move or bump and they shoot the movement across the room like a spring loaded movement launcher.  I use them for photos of Bulvoa movements, but an darn careful not to launch another movement across the room....

Cool, I didn't know what it was, just assumed it was a desktop card holder! I've got a Bulova movement launcher! Gonna re-sell it under "military watch items" !  HA!

If you look closely, you can just see on the bottom picture some words stamped on the gilt interior.

It says: "MADE BY THE AMERICAN STANDARD WATCH CASE Co."
