    Default Charles F. Gordon Pocket Watch

    Your watch is probably a "private label," and Charles Gordon is the name of the jeweler that sold it, and not the person/company that manufactured the watch. There's a nice explanation of private labels at http://www.interstatetime.com/PrivateLabels/PL_Main.htm that you might want to look at.

    To figure out who actually manufactured your watch, a picture or two would help to identify it (there's instructions on "how to post images" in the upper right hand corner of the page).

    Default Charles F. Gordon Pocket Watch (RE: John F)

    There was either an Illinois or Hamilton private label on Ebay about a month ago, that was a sidewinder and I believe it was Charles Gordon. I remeber because I live about 2 hours from there and wanted the watch, but let it go, again, I think it was a sidewinder as it was a pretty reasonable price but jumped up a little at the end.

    There was also a private label from Helena Arkansas that I really wanted, as thats where my family is from...But you gotta eat and keep the lights on...
