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
