Additional Information: 

A almost NOS looking pocket watch.  No markings whatsoever on the caseback.  I'm assuming the year, jewels, and the movement from another exact model I found on auction.

I don't know how to open this watch.  The seem is just to tight and I'm not going to scratch the crap out of it trying to mongo it open.

Try just unsrewing the case back counter-cockwise by hand. That's the way it works on my RR pocket watches. Are there two holes on the outboard sides of the pendant posts on either side of the crown?

Rev - I can't find any info on Dr Ranfft's site or elsewhere.
EDIT: I love those stylized numerals on the dial.  Surf King style (among others).
