I think you will agree a most interesting timepiece!

8 Days "to boot!"

Any ideas of history, date etc?

Look forward to any responses.

Roy,

"So mote it be!"

My guess is that Cecil Roy was a retailer.
Most of the Goliath watches I have seen and owned were either French or Swiss. I owned one that was made by Omega and another that was stamped on the movement made in France
