a boy on the UK forum has just asked and now I want to know too :lol: :lol:

Pocket watch nerds :?: Not sure about the object, but my guess would be some kind of "Night watchman" timing device, or pegging point which may have been fixed to a wall at various points throughout a facility. The watchman would travel round whatever facility they were in and insert some kind of key into the top aperture which would record the time the watchman was there :?: The bottom hole may have been for a separate key for a supervisor to check and wind the watch. Just a shot in the dark mind :)
