    It should be American: Crescent Watch Case Company from Newark, NJ. According to mikrolisk, they actually specialised in making gold filled cases so I presume that they got some movements in and also made some watches with their own cases for retail.

    Reminds me of the Waterbury watch co. logo,in fact I'm sure of it as I had one at one time,a google search under that name should tell you what you need to know.

    I'd agree that it appears to be Waterbury.

    A photo of the movement will be more informative than a photo of the dial.
