Identifying an old pocket watch

I am attempting to figure out the history of an old poket watch and seeing if anyone here might be able to give me some pointers on this piece of history.  The watch is about the size of a 50 cent piece.  It has an open face with roman numerals on it.  The back of the watch has a picture of an angel kneeling and hugging a dog.  On the inside of the watch there is "Cylindre 8 Rubis".  On the inside of the back of the watch there are a few stamps.  One is a half moon with a crown and the other is e)0,800(c.  The number 39594 is also stamped on the inside back cover. 

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?  Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, the half moon with a crown is the legal silver stamp. 0,800 is the legal "titre" of the silver used to do the case (as there is different gold : 14K, 18K, ...). The "Cylindre 8 rubis" means that the escapement used is "cylinder" (old fashion and never more used since beginning of nineten century), and 8 rubis = 8 jewels. Not familiar with the 50 cent piece, i believe it is a small one and that the watch is so a women pocket watch. Without photos it is difficult to say more. Enjoy. Patrice.

I don't see Vacheron or any other name on the watch.  I was hoping that the half moon next to the crown was a symbol from the manufacturer.  I tried to take a few pics but they are not that great.
