I do not believe this is metronome. It looks to be a timer for a task that requires that the person using it not look at the dial.

the hypothesis of a metronome seems to me reliable, next to the balance bridge a scale from 8 to 20. "the metronome numbers " range from 80 to 208

More likely people and not just walking. Astronomers used to time star crossing by listening to clock ticks. it may have been used on an assembly line to move product, or for training rowers on a racing shell.
