N. H. Watch Co.
Your watch sounds like what is commonly referred to as a "Swiss Fake." These were inexpensive Swiss watches, made specifically to look like a high grade American railroad watch. Some of these were surprisingly good timekeepers. They've come into their own, as there are now people who collect them.

Could your watch be marked Numa Frechelin? If so, a Swiss company existed in Colombier by that name. It was known for making watches of the American style,what the Swiss called "Boston" watches and now called Swiss Fakes by American collectors. Louis Frechelin made watches as far back as the 1880's, Numa was listed in the 1920's in the same town.
