I think my 1 yr old daughter painted the dial on that!  
 

Seriously, I hope someone can help you out with it. What sort of things did you inherit, anything interesting?

Haha, not the neatest job is it? That's part of what I'm wondering, was it just an original bad paint job or has it been butchered at a later date? 

Watch wise there loads of oldish quartz ones, a few dodgy Florida flea market ones. Not sure what would be classed as interesting but there's an Omega seamaster crosshair dial, a cardinal rallye gt, a Smiths deluxe , a few timex automatics, a seiko world time automatic...not got through all the rest of them yet!

The West End Watch Company was a good Swiss maker of watches dating before 1900

Their movements are always quite elegant and are "Above Average" in my opinion :)

Sadly that has been butchered, someone attempting to "restore" the dial.

The company was Swiss, but with strong ties to India.

Yours would have looked something like the one being discussed here.
