Hi, this is an earlier M J Tobias with a Lepine Type very thin movement that is in bits at the moment. It has Soldiers on both sides of the Case; anyone come up what Army the Soldiers are in? Remembering that these Pocket Watches are sold mostly in America. It has the Casemaker Flotron LG engraved in the Case. Regards Ray

Appears to be a Swiss watch for the civil war with a motif of American and/or Confererate soldiers.

I would say that this is the Case Maker. "Be it known that I, EMILE FLOTRON, manufacturer,
...a citizen of the Republic of Switzerland, residing at
...Madretsch, canton of Bern, Switzerland, have invented
...certain new and useful Improvements in...".
