    Hi, I could not resist this Silver Pocket Watch Case. It has I think a non-working movement. The seller did not mention size; so what it is is what it is. Regards Ray

    48 mm outer case. You can't buy cat food for $20 bucks. SMILEY FACE.

    You cannot go wrong for $20
    Is that scrap value?
    There is also the chance that the movement could be repairable

    Hi Les, "the movement may be repairable?" The wear on the back of the Case shows that it was used for a long period of time; one can only hope. Regards Ray

    Hi Allan, I was fully aware that it is Swiss Cylinder movement. I now have a photo and I think it has a Broken Balance Pivot. Regards Ray
