    Jeff,

    It doesn't ring a bell with me.

    From the looks of the dial I'd say it's on an 11 jewel mvt.

    Nice watch. My dad worked for & retired from the Oneida limited silver smiths. Which started out as the Oneida Community Which was somewhat like the Shakers. My dad told me they sold pocket watches along with a lot of other things with their name on them.
