I cannot read the marks on your spoons very well, but together with your description of the marks I don't think they are silver. They are probably some sort of nickel-silver alloy or electroplate. You do not show the marks on the watch fob, but once again from your description it may be silver with a Birmingham assay mark and probably dating from 1899 as you say that the anchor is on its side. To be sure I need to see a clear picture of the hallmark.
