    Welcome to the board.

    I'm not a watch expert but to me this looks like a modern Chinese repro. The badly stenciled lettering on the dial is supposed to look like a (British) government issue arrow and maybe 1939 is supposed to be the date. I don't think either is real. No idea what the ship is supposed to represent.

    But I'm not a watch man, so perhaps I'm wrong and others will be along with more info.

    It's Chinese, as JTD says. Check out this thread and this one for information that may be helpful. I own a similar one. As timekeepers go, it's a good paperweight.
