      Name on watch, may have been owner of watch. Seems like a railroad watch, that may have been given to a employee...May be markings on inside such as maker...Just a thought...

      Metal looks like it could be brass and copper, I agree with mr. colorz, seems like a railway pocket watch, which are apparently pretty collectable. I've heard the roman numerals/numbers together was commonly used in pocketwatches from the mid to late 1800's, it looks like the fob could be the original one too (minus the fob charm, obviously). If you pop open the back (or get a jeweller/horologist to do it for you) you should find some information on the manufacturer and/or who made the movement. Lovely piece of history!!
