We've seen a couple examples of this watch with a sweep seconds hand, I suspect yours had one at one time as well,  here's mine.  Alas, we never have found a name.

I have one of theae as well, but I don't believe my case was scrolled.

Still unknown.

This is a wonderful timepiece, and I'd be very interested in seeing the case inside and movement.

I uploaded some of the images from the Photobucket as these link tend to disappear with time. The inner markings on the case back are consistent with the similar models we have on site, BWC Co (Brooklyn Watch Case Company) The serial number is a couple hundred below my example.
