Who Made This Watch?

James Russell & Co., Hartford Conn

#24353 December 2015 eBay ad with follow up comments from Jeff Marcus

This James Russell is of the higher grade "AT&Co. M57 look-a-like" watch, at least because of the exposed hairspring stud, expansion balance and script signature on the movement facing the center. However, it does not have jewel settings; but rather pressed in burnished jewels like Russell #23283. The dial is a replacement not shown. Jeff Marcus reports the number 55 is stamped inside on plates and bridges.
