Never seen something quite like this before. Interesting indeed, thx! :)
A patent was apply for but never granted for these cases, my guess is that after WW1 interest decline.
It's different, some like them some don't.
To me they served their purpose, protecting the glass whether in the trenches or for your average civilian normal wear.
There were also the clip on or strap on crystal guards so you had your choices.
Here are a few samples.

I did not knew it was a vintage watch thing! My first watch had an armoured watch as well, though I got rid of the protection because it made it bulkier.



That is nice, these vintage watches run on the small side from 32mm to 35mm, normal mens size back then but small in todays standard.
