.... I was doing a little search on a diver watch I saw on a flea market a while back. On the brand name itself I havent found a whole lot other than it had a generic 17J Swiss movement and that the watch was put on the market by what used to be Clinton Watch Co. - nothing to do with politics.

And digging deeper found a very interesting read about the begining of watch making in the US and Russia. The read will take some time since its prety long but I found it extremly interesting.

Here is the link and enjoy!
