Went to a new thrift store yesterday. Tucked away in a corner were these “ voice o graph” records. Not to sure as to the history of the pocket watch. Thanks for viewing!! Have a great weekend. IMG_1127.jpeg

Thanks pepps🌶️!! The make is Illinois. Only reference I have is eBay pics, some advertised as circa 1910s-1920s. Not really sure as to how to truly date.
Just pop the back off and use this link guide to date the serial number.

If there's a small tab up by the winder then it's a pop off.
No tab then it probably be a screw on back.
Rubber glove, against the palm works.

You need to either unscrew the back or possibly unscrew the crystal bezel if by chance it's a swing out movement. Basically you need to check out the movement to get the whole scope of what you have. Outwardly it looks like a 16 size and depending on the amount of jewels it might be a railroad grade watch. The dial is a typical looking railroad watch style.
