Walking stick watch

New postby Irwin » Sat Aug 20, 2016 4:09 pm

At a flea market today and came across this walking stick watch.
I haven't opened it yet to see what's inside. My guess is that it's probably a Swiss movement. It sets by depressing the crown and rotating anti-clockwise, and winds by rotating clockwise without depressing the crown.
Datewise, I can only guess, but I think probably 1910-1920s.
Now, I need a stick and to fit it. Going to an antiques fair tomorrow so maybe I'll find something suitable.

Sure its for a walking stick?

Looks like a knob for a gear shift.

I'm not sure about it being a gear shift knob as I think there would be a tendency to twist it when changing gear, but it's a thought.

Meanwhile it's keeping time.
