Very nice, an heirloom quality case with a movement to match. Unlike most of the new mass produced movements with care and an occasional overhaul that clock will keep ticking for centuries. Well done!
I do think 17th century is a bit early, if there is a name on the dial or if you can post some pictures of the movement I may be able to tell you more about it.
