Key-wind/Key-set Movements
The very first pocket watches up until the third quarter of the 19th century had key-wind and key-set movements.  A watch key was necessary to wind the watch and to set the time.  This was usually done by opening the case back and putting the key over the winding-arbor (which was set over the watch's winding-wheel, to wind the mainspring) or by putting the key onto the setting-arbor, which was connected with the minute-wheel and turned the hands.  Some watches of this period had the setting-arbor at the front of the watch, so that removing the crystal and bezel was necessary to set the time. 

This watch includes a reproduction of the correct size key, it is not the original.
