The Pocket Watch Database has compiled data covering the major American pocket watch manufacturers and created an easy way to find information using the serial number on the watch movement. Here are a few tips to find information about your pocket watch:
Location: Fitchburg, Massechusetts
Years of Operation: 1875-1878
Equipment purchased by Cornell Watch Co, among others
Fitchburg Watch Co. is founded in Fitchburg, Massachusetts by S. Sawyer. Many of the employees came from the Unite States Watch Co., including prior superintendent, H.J. Lowe.
After failing to find suitable investors, the Fitchburg Watch Co. ceases operations and the equipment is sold to the Sawyer Watch Tool Co. (the subsequent operation of Mr. S. Sawyer and Gilbert Crowell), the Cornell Watch Co., and others.
