It appears to be a handle for holding a rectangular shape. One slides the lower leg under the object, slides the handle portion down, and picks up on it. This would lock the handle in place while you carry the object. It looks too big to be used for watch making. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

It's a gauge used in the bindry industry. Measures stacks of paper when making Note Pads. The long part of the gauge is placed on the top of a stack of 5 x 7 paper and the gauge then pushed into the stack so that the shorter part slides into the stack for a short distance and then the person is able to pick up the measured amount of paper enough to reach under and grab hold of it enough to re-stack it with a slip sheet of heavy card stock into piles. One side of the piles were then painted with a rubber type of binder that would dry over night. The next day the individual note pads were cut apart at the heavy card stock backing of the pad. Maybe I can find a photo of the process.

I used one when I was in highschool. Printing and binding 101 :)
