Queen Victoria
As she remained queen until her dead in 1901, "Late Queen" means that the watch was made after 1901. After the style of this watch nobody would date it to 1950, but hallmarks and dedication point to this year, and Victora was the last queen J.W. Benson acted as royal watchmaker for. Thus she still had to serve for advertising. And considering how few pocketwatches were made back then, and even less of such high grade, this surely didn't harm the remembrance on her.
