It would definitely help to see a photograph of the movement.Fridlander was a very fine retailer
45 mm it's woman or men ?thank you for your answers guysWelcome to this forum.
You have a very nice watch. My guess the case hallmark is 1879.
It looks to be a woman's watch with a fusee and lever, either English or Swiss made in the English style. This is a much more accurate watch than is typical for small watches of this time.
Its value depends on its size for two reasons. First, larger watches have more gold in their cases. Second, yours seems to be a woman's watch and collectors are usually less interested in them.
Most of its value is in its gold case, but its a very fine watch.
And any ideea about it's value?Jon is correct your case carries a genuine set of London hallmarks for 1879/80. The case made of 18K gold with the maker's mark of Alfred Fridlander of Holyhead Road Coventry. The mark registered at the London assay office on 21 August, 1872.

As I indicated above Fridlander produced very fine watches which obtained high marks in the Kew trials.
This watch is not one of his top of the range examples, but it is a well made Coventry 3/4 plate single roller jewelled to the 4th wheel with a capped balance. It is similar to many watches produced in Coventry at the time. It was produced somewhat earlier than the top quality watches that Fridlander finished and submitted for trial. I suspect at this time he may have only performed minimal work on movements of this type, and the company's focus was on casing movements made in Coventry and supplying them into the wholesale and retail trade.
Jon - do you mean the watch or the maker?but is not one of the stars
