I bought a group of watchmaker's tools at an auction recently, one of which was unknown to me. Perhaps someone can identify what I have from the attached photo.

I see, thanks. I paid five bucks for it and they sold for two. Oh well, can't win them all . . .

I think many of these tools are French in origin. At the same auction I picked up the following depthing tool.

That's back when penny candy existed, and was good. Those 2 bucks are probably worth 75 today, but these made new (to those standards, not chinese) would be several hundred easily. You got a great deal.

Now you have to upgrade a bunch of 7 jewel pocket watches ;-)
