The Clinton Watch Company was owned by the Wein family of Chicago.

This example is one of my best purchases on eBay. I’ll let the photos do the talking but basically this watch was sold by the Robert Morton Company to a Mr. W. Bach on the 15th November 1961. On 14th October 1964, Mr Bach then removed the dead battery and stored the watch away.

It cost US$150 when new which in today’s money equals US$935!
