Looks in great shape for 110 years or so. Appears small in your hand, what is the case size? Congrats.

Fabulous. The centric circular pattern engraving is done manually with help of some special fiddle-dee-doo I once was shown by a watchmaker, allowing to turn the case click by click, aiding in angle and distance from center. Very very nice!
I believe it is an Elgin.

Looks fantastic and familiar believe from 1894 to the 20’s the bird was very sought after engraving. Last couple I have seen have ranged in price from around 2k-3500.
