Secret Compartment Scroll Watch - 1920s Favre Leuba "Notora"

I've featured many antique and vintage spy timepieces in the past (spy cameras, microphones, etc.) but never one quite like the Favre Leuba "Notora" of the 20's. This somewhat indistinguishable wristwatch has a very special feature, the hidden compartment containing a scroll on rollers under the dial and movement. By pushing a little release button at the bottom of the case, the watch opens up to reveal the notepaper rolls which can be adjusted by two roller knobs.
