This is one of the more unusual watches I have run across in my travels! It measures approximately 55mm in diameter, and I would guess that it was made in Switzerland sometime around 1900. It is a hunter cased watch, with the outer layers engraved with "niello". That alone is interesting. What is truly odd, though, is the fact that this watch actually has two separate dials, one on the front of the watch and one on the rear. The dial on the front is to tell the time, whereas the one on the back is used to display the day and date. The rear dial is actually just an outer band, with the movement visible in the center, and the day and date needles point to the appropriate numbers along the edge of that band.
