This is a stop watch only, by the New Haven Clock Co. 1853 - 1946, reorganized to the New Haven Clock & Watch Co. March 1946 - 1956.
This is marked PAT.PEND. on the movement.
The button on the side of the case between the 5 & 10 operates the stop/start function. Moving it down starts the timer & moving it up stops the timer.
The 4th image above is from George Townsend's book, Dollar Watches, The Watch That Made The Dollar Famous, and describes it as:
Octagon case, nickel plated. Indicates playing or working time from one second to one hour.
geo26e, note that the hand on this one is also like the ones on your Skeezix watch.
Thanks for looking,
