A silver cased pocket watch with a maritime scene, London 1818
This pretty example with a painted dial very probably belonged to an officer. Because those two ships in the harbour are two warships, and an officer would have been more likely to have had them painted on than a private person.

I was sent to school to learn Latin and Greek, of which there are various ways of teaching. Some tutors attempt the suaviter in modo, my schoolmaster preferred the fortiter in re, and, as the boatswain said, by the “instigation” of a large knotted stick, he drove knowledge into our skulls as a caulker drives oakum into the seams of a ship.
— Frederick Marryat, The Naval Officer (Frank Mildmay)
