Found this interesting piece in an estate collection. Comes with an interesting story. Was found by a Civil War soldier on battleground. He pawned it to another soldier and never went back to pay off the loan. That person was told by another soldier who the original owner was. He was reported to be a wealthy young man from NY who was drugged and kidnapped and sent to war as a "substitute." The young man wanted to go to war anyway and didn't resist further. He was later reported as killed in battle. The person who held the watch as collateral (grandfather of the estate holder where I found it) tried to find the family but could not. So... it ended up in a Vermont estate. I haven't figured out Grandpa's unit yet, but will. Anyway a fun piece in really nice condition. Wants to run. Particularly interested if the watch was cased in England or the US. I'm guessing US.
