    The company was in existence from 1883 to 1983. The same O.V.B. ("Our Very Best") logo appears on a 1922 Hibbard, Spencer & Barlett catalog. I would guess that the fob dates from the early 1900's. Here's a link to more info:

    And more here, including a page from an old OVB "Want Book" which shows the same watch fob:
