Henry Williamson, Ltd. owned a large watch factory in Coventry, England. They manufactured various American style movements, most of which appear to have been three quarter plate.  During WWI (1914-1918) Williamson provided a large number of 18 size, open faced, 7 jewel watches to the British Government. They also provided 8 day aviation time pieces to the Admiralty and the Royal Flying Corps.  Though the movements were made in Coventry, the dials are marked, “H. WILLIAMSON LTD LONDON” in two lines, along with the military issue number under the word, London.   The military issue number is found on the dial, on the outside edge of the case body and on the outside of the back cover under a broad arrow. This issue number is not the same as the movement serial number or the case maker’s number found inside these watches. The majority of Williamson military pocket watches were in British made nickel Dennison cases.

Schatz Royal Mariner Clock

Two eight-day mechanical movements: one for the clock and one for the chimes to mark the time-honoured "Ship's Bells" naval watch system - four hours on, four hours off. Each half-hour is marked by an increasing number of strikes until "eight-bells" i.e., time to change over the watch.

Schatz is the leading manufacturer of classic ships' instruments, and one of very few that still make the mechanical chiming movements that were so familiar to the naval and merchant seaman of 100 years ago. They can sound out the fascinating "Ship's Bells" watchkeeping system of four hours on four hours off, striking one bell after the first half-hour, two after an hour and so on until the end of watch "eight bells" - time to change crew and start the pattern again.
