Wexclox Pocket Ben. My grandfathers pocket watch. He drove a John Dear like the one on the fob. Does anyone have information?

Mystery Solved

    These are known as "dollar watches". An inexpensive watch claiming it made the dollar famous because most could be purchased for $1.00.
    There are numbers on the back plate of the watch movement that dates the year of manufacture (the back cover pops off to reveal the movement). You might see 4 (space) 14 which would be April 1914. Three sets of numbers, 12 (space) 16 (space) 25 would be December 16, 1925.
    Yours is a Pocket Ben with a luminous dial & hands. Some were marked Glo Ben.
    Nice John Deer watch fob also.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Nice! The watch FOB is much newer ... actually 1968 to 1972?
