Interesting watch. I really like it. It appears to have some Niello influence in the finish. This finish was generally done on silver or silver alloy cases.

A quick internet search yielded this link. I'm not sure how much I can copy and paste directly in to this post without violating any kind of copy right restrictions.

Frainier & Sons appear to have been case designers and a going concern from 1864 to 1914
