J.P. STEVENS WATCH Co.
In mid-1881 J.P. Stevens bought part of the Springfield Watch co. of Massachusetts; and some unfinished watch components from F.F. Bowman. He set up his watchmaking firm above his jewelry store in Atlanta, Ga. And started to produce the Bowman unfinished watches which were 16 size and 18 size. In 1884, the company was turning out about ten watches a day at a price of $20 to $100 each. In the spring of 1887, the company failed. Only 169 true Stevens watches were made, but other watches carried the J.P. Stevens name.
