JW BENSON CHIMING MUSICAL POCKET WATCH QUESTION

Has anyone seen or know how to research this type pocket watch. this is a lever set with gold lever slide on right side . This lever when slid down will cause the internal hammers to ring striking curved tubes on inner case then do a musical tune.
Silver Hallmarked case this is about 1905 came from a collection in Argentina .
Please email me at [email protected] with any info. Thanks George

It is called A repeater watch, and yes they are rare. A minute repeater chimes a sequence of notes to tell the time to exact minute.
