New York City Watch Company, 1890-1897 New York, New York. Made cheap watches with a clever crank wind design. Moveable stem/pendant which cranks to the right along the side of the case frame to wind the watch!

watches are a wonderful collectors' Item and possibly can be acquired as sleepers!

Dials are paper, signed "lever winder."
