Ottoman period pocket watch

Greetings from Istanbul!

I have visited the Turkey's Grand bazaar this morning and found this early period hand wind pocket watch from the Ottoman empire in very good condition.The dial has the Ottoman language markers and wording making it a collectable watch. Instead of getting some usual tourists souvenirs, I have much preferred these vintage pocket watch that has some history and cultural values. The owner of the shop is a middle age man, and he is very friendly and helpful. My friend lock bought one too..

The are many pocket watches but many have damaged dials : (
