    Default I have an old Clinton watch

    My Name is Larry and my passed away and in here pocket book I found some old watches, I have identified one as a elgin made in 1936. but I have a second one that is marked as a 17 jewel movement swiss made watch made by the Clinton Watches. Can anyone give me any idea about this watch, year made, where made, value; etc I would like to find out more about the watch but am really not interested in selling.

    thanks for your help

    The Clinton is Swiss made on one of the more popular ebauches. I seem to recall Font or Felsa. Either way---the watch would be a good time keeper of average quality.

    Pictures would help in dating your watch but off hand (given other Clintons I have seen), I would say it is from the 1940 to 1950's era.
