In 1872, the United States Watch Company (Marion) distributed this price list to the trade, detailing the impressive products offered by the company, including their innovative “pendant winders.” At the time, the company was eagerly positioning as a high-end watch manufacturing operation, fueled by the ambitions of Giles, Wales & Co. The premier grade offered was the “United States Watch Co.,” priced at $450 for the stem-winding 16-Size “No. 17.” This publication is significant for researchers, as it contains one of the most comprehensive lists of grade descriptions known for the United States Watch Company.
