The Charles Lindbergh watch Fob only says New York to Paris with a design number on the back 79,160. I check the Google patent design and found that a Charles Oppenheim had applied for a watch fob design on Nov 1, 1928 and assigned the design to Sears, Roebuck and Co. Chicago. It looks like this fob is missing the compass. The second watch fob is also a Oppenheim design.

    ttomtucker,
    The first one is missing the compass. a lot of the compasses got lost in these because the ring holding the compass in is thin and easily broken. Here is a link to mine.
