This watch is called a “Transitional" era watch. It was re-cased for use as a wristwatch. This was quite common back then, as it became “fashionable” for men to wear wristwatches (and stop carrying pocket watches around) they would send a pocket watch to the original factory or jeweler to be retrofitted.
