Can't say I've seen a case marked 'TORONTO" before. Minute hand seems correct, but hour hand might be a replacement.

Haven't been able to find a matching advert with a ame, but I would agree that 1929 is the correct year.

WOW is that a cool watch Steve! I love it. Can't say I've ever seen anything like it. Love that "Toronto" marked case, especially the case shape!

Interesting watch.  I do not recall seeing this case before.  Unknown for me.

I have come back to this one several times and can't find an ID. Never seen one like it, or one in a Toronto marked case either. Thanks for sharing it. We have a generic "Pocket Watch" category at present; I suggest placing it there until a proper name is discovered.

Agreed with placing this watch in the general 'pocket watch' category for now.
