This watch was my Great Grandfather's. He was a watchmaker himself so he may have built this. Just curious if anybody could point me in the right direction identifying it? The only marks i see are the numbers 24021678. I count 11 rubies built into the gears. There are no hands, it's not a watch. It just sort of spins. Thanks for helping me solve this 40 year old mystery. :)

Interesting work. But I don't recognize the movement. Sorry.

If I didn't know better, I'd say your grandfather made that for gits and shiggles, just to show what the inside of a pocketwatch looks like...

Thanks you very much. He coulda very well made it for gits and shiggles. I'm thinking that's what it is.

There's no way of turning this into a functional watch is there? If not, then I stand by what I said. That it was done jsut for the heck of it, as a fancy little display piece.
