These glass backs displaying movements were sent from the watch manfacturers with and without mov'ts for the jeweler to display moments for the customers to view both the dial & mov't prior to choosing a case!

Hell i gave it my best shot Smile mainly to place burden on him to provide documentation...

so this waltham wooden box with wired hinge and movement holder would be a sales tool....

Like skeleton cases used by Hamilton, Illinois, etc for shipment and display in store....
