Please note that this sale is for the larger watch only and does not include the smaller one Please note: This is a PATENT Watch.This watch was made with a gap on the dial above the 12 to accommodate a light bulb. By the one there is an electrical input and the watch box the watch comes in see below would have accommodated a battery and the watch would have sat on top of this battery in the box. This is included with the watch but not shown in the images
