This is an American pocket watch made by the Elgin Watch Co. This watch has a glass back so that the movement is visible. These cases were used by salesmen and shops to display the movements to customers. Because these watches do have glass back and front, they are not really suitable to use, they are more collectible or make a great display / paperweight on desk.
