Gold Pocket Watch

I found this watch today. Is it gold? Is it plated? Can you help me date it?
I think the case is Kenosha, It has an Indian hallmark.

That is a neat find for sure.

I would guess that it is probably gold plated.  The outer cover looks like it is wearing thin.  Do you see any areas where you can see a darker metal underneath.  Sometimes the gold plate will flake off on an edge and the base metal will start to patina.


nice find either way!!
