    I think it's merely the design of the dial and the choice of font used. Fonts and dial-designs were not specific to any company, as far as I know.

    Post a picture of the movement and indicate movement serial number, and we can tell you quite a bit about your watch.

    Unscrew the back of the watch. The movement will tell you what it is. The serial number will guide you to find the date and a good book will tell you about the movement. These type of dials were common all types of pocket watches.
