    Pocket watch identification help needed

    Is this a multi-jewelled late 1800s fusee?

    Well, it's fat enough -- but I don't know.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Looks like a New Haven Watch and Clock Product. Might be a pin lever movement according to Shugart. Unlikely a fusee as these were more common in the UK.

    Certainly not a fusee. The American makers had little time for such complexities. Besides which, based on the visible pivots, there doesn't seem to be room for a fusee. Late 1800s is about right given the stem winding (by the way, where is the crown?) and side-mounted balance cock.
