It is a key wound and key set watch, maybe from about 1900 or earlier. The very fancy face makes it look more expensive than the basic movement it has behind it. It looks to be a silver case, if so the case will have hallmarks that may help us dating it properly. Please take close up pictures and describe any stamped marks you see on the inner caseback.

Hi Erik. The only thing it has are two sets of numbers inside the case. One at the top of the case is 21181 and a number 12747 near the hinge which is also repeated inside the dust cover. I did notice when i took it apart to clean it that its fitted with the Geneva stop mechanism (which someone has disabled)

Then it is likely not a silver case. An affordable watch when new, with the nicest part being the dial, which by now is sadly lacking the digits for the seconds counter. Keep it as it is, maybe in a glass display.
