This case is referred to as a ‘Swing Out” case in that there is no separate back cover. The movement is set into a bezel that swings out from the case as opposed to having a back that would screw off. So only the front bezel screws off. The function is to protect the pocket watch from being opened easily and something happening by accident to harm the movement. These cases were very popular as Railroad Cases for being so safe and durable.
