Certainly pre-WWII... and possibly pre 1900. (dial and lack of shock protection and bridging are clues) Probably Swiss (bridging). Beyond that you'll need real experts, not ones that play expert like me
I would go along with the previous assessment. Iron or silver? Does it have "0.800" or similar on the inside of the case? That would be silver then, which was more common as a case material for watches in those days.....
At that price everything had better be flawless and in perfect operating order. Condition can demand a premium. Bit of a risk based on "working order" being the only description from a jeweler, it seems.
