A Button-hole Watch

Contributed by Antiques Roadshow - Beverley

This Edwardian-style button hole watch was bought in a shop in Prague Castle. There is also a version in the Prague Technical Museum. It is made to be worn on a lapel or through a button hole and the fittings are minute. The time is set by pushing the casing button down, and the surround is made from gunmetal.
