To identify the older English watches require more expertise than I have. The names engraved in the movement are often the retailer and not the actual maker...

The crescent shaped bridge watch is unlike any bridging I have seen. The mark stamped into the edge appears to be a steamboat or RR engine... I can't tell. But I've not seen it either!

Interesting pieces.

Hi Lenny. The last 2 movements are english lever fussee verge types. The design of the balance cock hints that they date between 1760 and 1830. As Eeeb suggests they are marked with the retailers name.
