The original painting (oil on canvas; 2 x 2.34 m) is in the Dallas Museum of Fine Art, Dallas (U.S.A.).

The movement could be based on a Rockford or Longines pocket watch, or a combination of the two (the serial number clearly visible in the painting could have belonged to a Rockford; if so, it represents a watch made in 1894).
