Watkins Bee Meter

This little pocketwatch sized device has been hanging around our house as a decoration for years.
 The enigmatic name might have helped save it from the trash, but what was it for? A device for counting bees? Too obvious. No apparent useable scale for counting or measuring anything...
As nearly always, a quick google search provides the answer, it's a photographic light meter.
