Literature. In earlier times a key was needed to wind the watch and set the time. There were many types of keys from fancy ones to advertising ones and made of diverse metals. There were also ratchet type keys to make winding easier. Key sizes varied since they had to fit the different size arbors on the watch. They were usually around a inch and a half in length and were attached to the pocket watch chain or chatelaine.
In good condition. Minor gilt losses. Tiny wear crack to one end.
