A pocket watch owned by a ship's captain who was famously set adrift during the mutiny on HMS Bounty is up for sale in an online auction.

Lieutenant William Bligh was overthrown by rebel crew in the South Pacific in 1789 and given a boat and basic supplies.

He then navigated the 4,000 miles (6,482km) to present day Indonesia, which few of his 18 crew survived.

The watch is in a lot being auctioned by Sworders of Stansted, Essex.

Hallmarked "London 1802", it is expected to achieve up to £5,000.
