    I Googled Roskel and it seems that there
    were a lot of fakes with his name on them.
    But I'm sure you knew that.:)

    it is a good medium quality 13 -or maybe 15- jewel swiss club footed rectangular lever,a bar movement,intended for the english market.I wouldn´t call it a fake,and it was obviously retailed by Robert Roskell.The movement looks nice and clean,but I´d give it a full service before I wear it regularly.

    Thanks for the information. Can you put an approximate date on this watch? If I removed it from the case might I find more information?

    my guess would be:third quarter of the 19th cent. per style and layout of the movement.HTH
