Antique watches I can't place...

Would love to find the history on these. Part of my great aunt's extensive collection of antiques and jewelry we inherited after she passed away. 

Sussex seven-jewel ladies lapel watch. Seems more 1940s. The backside is glass, you can see the inner workings of the timepiece through it.

"H.W.C." on the face of this watch pendant. There are two chains that lead to one chain which holds the pendant. The numbers look rather old, I'm thinking early 1900s to 1920s. There was a pocket watch company called H.W.C. but on their website all the watches have serial nunbers, this clearly does not.  Believe it or not, this still ticks. In short spurts. I wind it up, it ticks awhile then stops. Needs cleaning on the inside no doubt then it'll likely work.
