      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,
      Dave

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