I have a WW Dudley Masonic pocket watch, which I believe was made between 1923 and 1925. It has a glass back so you can see the masonic signs built into the movement. Very ingenious! Anybody got any info on these watches? Are they collectible &c?

These movements are very collectible and quite valuable for obvious reasons. They are fantastic looking watches. I have seen them in display cases such as yours and in more typical cases as well. I do not know if a "correct" case exists for this movement as I have seen them in a wide variety of cases.

Very collectable and highly sought after watch. I have seen such examples go for over $1,000 dollars on various auction sites in the past. The craftsmanship on these movements are quite exquisite as you can already tell!

There is an excellent NAWCC pamphlet (small book) on Dudley
Yours is model 1 with the raised bible - I think you will get a shock to its value
