Very old key-wound lady's pocket watch

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please help a complete novice with identifying an old, silver-plated pocket watch that's been handed down in my family for 3 or possibly 4 previous generations, so maybe from around 1800 or earlier?

It has an overall  diameter of only 36mm, and the Roman numerals are surrounded by a pink ring, with a tiny floral design in the centre, leading me to think it must be a ladies model.

Upon opening the back, there is a further hinged cover plate with two keyholes - a larger one for winding, and a smaller one for adjusting.

The only lettering I can find is the name GATTON, and numerals 0800 and 24795. In really tiny script are the initials PJC.

I have tried adding three photos by pasting the URL of my Dropbox images, but I'm unsure if that will work - if not, I could also do with some advice on this aspect, please!

Many thanks,

Alec.
