Default Rollie Watch Company

Greetings, I recently purchased a "Rollie" Pocket Watch. Does anyone know any history of the "Rollie" Watch Company? Is it still in business? Where was/is it located? The watch I purchased has a casing/shell in the shape of a baseball and opens like a clamshell. The watch says:17 jewel movement, Swiss made. The outer shell is silver/pewter in color. I would appreciate any information. Thank you.
