I am unable to see the marks on the watch (too blurry). There was no maker named Multa so I am wondering where you are seeing that and if it might be another name. Is there any way to get better in focus pictures of the inner case, movement and dial?

Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.
This is a 1917 octagonal trench watch from World War 1. The 14k pendant watch made by Multa Watch Company and the case made by Standard Watch Company (SWC) of Syracuse, New York was a woman's pendant watch that was given to a soldier that went to war. This is when the strap loops were added so that the soldier could wear the watch on his wrist to remember his lady. This watch has a current value of $300.00.
