Additional Information

I just purchased this from the jewelers as an estate piece.  It was in the store for quite some time and all that time I had admired it.  I really like it so it really doesn't matter if it is made out of mud.  But, I would like to know what model it is.  There is nothing that the jeweler knows.  I purchased it for 1/2 what he wanted for it, so of course I think I have a bargain.  I just hope that I do.  What do you think I have?

 

Thanks!

Hi All, thanks for trying to figure out what this piece is.  It is baffling me.  However, today after doing strenuous exercise, I had found that the back and the casing had fallen out of the watch itself.  After frantic searching, I found it.  I was able to take a picture of the inside workings, and maybe this can shed more light on the subject.  Thanks again for all your help.
