FREDONIA WATCH CO.
The company sold the finished movements acquired from the Independent Watch Co. Those movements had been made by other companies. The Fredonia Watch Company was sold to the Peoria Watch Co. in 1885, after having produced approximately 20,000 watches. Fredonia makes a official announcement that read as follows:
“Born at 2 o’clock p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 1st (1882). The “Mark Twain” gilt key winding movement. The child is vigorous and healthy, and there seems to be a large and increasing number of him. His parents are proud of him, and he already promises to become as universal a favorite as his illustrious namesake.
This example is one of the 20,000 ever produced. The model is a hunting model, full plate nickel (high Grade), lever set, 15 jewels, marked: "QUICK BEAT", and Fredonia Watch CO./ Fredonia, N.Y. This watch is running, excellent all original condition with a mint original dial. THIS IS A FINE COLLECTIBLE. DON'T INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET OR BONDS. BUY HARD ASSETS, SOMETHING PROVEN IN TIME.
