John not sure…Only markings on the case is the number 4 which I am thinking is for 4 ozs. It looks like silver but can’t say for sure…

I am not sure how many were produced...According to Tom Engle and Cooksey Shugart less than 350 were produced...This is article from Elgin Almanac 1874 which states around 500 at that time...So not sure...Either number a pretty scarce watch...
