I had originally posted this elsewhere and was told it is European. I don't know anything about it other than it belonged to my great-grandmother and has her initials in script inside the back cover. She was from Germany. Hope these pictures help.

Hello,

What you have there is a verge fusee that would date to approx 1815 give or take 20 years.. Very nice dial and hand set.. However it is missing some critical parts from the movement namely the balance cock.. and part of the hairspring regulation device..Very difficult to ever get it running again with these parts missing.. Or are they laying in the box..? The case is typical silver and it is what is called a consular case..The movement is unsigned and would be difficult to find the maker with out this..Exact dating is also predicated on knowing the maker...
