I wonder if anyone could shed some light on the approximate age of a pocket watch that has been handed down through a few generations. I believe it to be around 1880 but I can't find a hallmark to indicate the assay office on the case. It looks like a fairly conventional escapement and construction, but I am no expert so would love to know what others think. The crystal is missing (I assume it broke and damaged the hour hand which someone tried to solder and repair afterwards). I was always fascinated by the watch as a child and was one of the many reasons I got into Horology.
