I once blundered into http://docplayer.net/62332375-Running-on-time-clocks-and-timekeeping-in-the-nsw-railways.html. Mostly about the clocks, but there are some images of pocket watches which may help with identification.

If you can put up with and successfully pass the stupid tests to see if you're human (Why??? It's just a pdf file!) you can download it.

I have a New South Wales Government Railways drivers watch that belonged to my Grandfather who retired in 1944. It is mounted in a display case with two medals he rec'd so I cannot get to the back to see which company made it. On the front face there is the wording, New South Wales Government Railways, on two lines in small print.

From memory there was a section in Railway House, from memory on the six or seventh floor that repaired and maintained watches, which I assume was part of the Electrical Branch, which occupied these floors in the Green House as it was called.

Thanks for the info Les.
A tip that you probably already know, get the watch serviced to ensure that it does not break due to sticky mechanisms, which is a real thing over time.
