I looking for information about this pocket watch
Well, the case hallmarks aren't English and the movement probably isn't either. Ellicott was a well-known London firm whose name was used on fakes and I suspect that's what you have here.
these some variants found on a list of fake Elicot / Ecklicot / Ellicott.
the closing of the dust cover is also unusual for an English watch
As are the steel 'endstone' in the balance cock, the 'square-ish' pillars and the tapered case bolt.
I like the face scribed on the balance cock. I feel I should know this dude. Looks gargoylish.
Just a grotesque, throw back to earlier times.
Actually, as these fakes go, this is rather better than many I've seen. The fakers have made a real effort to duplicate an English watch of the period, they just didn't get the details quite right, but this probably wasn't aimed primarily at the UK market.

I am particularly interested in the cap. It appears to have been well made, and the method of securing it well engineered. If possible can you provide a photograph of the inside please.
Here you are
Myk - thanks for these photographs - which are good to see.
Sorry, I did not express myself very clearly. Can you please post a photograph of the underside of the cap - it will be very interesting to see if there are any marks.
I think he was talking about the dust cap.
