This is a Hamilton watch company gold filled (not gold) open face pocket watch with private label dial and movement by CF Dunbar of Wausau, Wisconsin. C.F Dunbar made jewelry, watch parts and bicycles. This piece dates to 1880. The crystal (glass cover) has been super glued on by someone and that is not a good thing. The residue there is a real detractor. This watch, not working, has a value of 60-80 dollars.
