    It's a Model 1889 6 size made in 1890. They were made with 7-11 Jewels. The serial number on the movement 4479284 is the important one.

    Based on the shape of the coverplate on the movement it is an Model 1889 Size 6, and the serial confirms it was made in 1889 not 1890 as someone else posted. Probably worth $40-$50 in "not working" condition.

    I used the NAWCC SN database. A years difference between databases is not unusual.
