European, probably late 18th century. It appears to have what is called a "verge and fusee" movement. It would once have had an outer case that would have fit around the current case (that's why the stem is so long). Watches of this sort are very hard to repair and are collected mostly by specialists.

It looks like this watch Joachim Hovenschiold Stockholm 1790 Schweden looks quite similar to the one we discuss here. What do you think?
