    Default Burlington Watch Company

    In brief, the "Burlington Watch Company" was a mail order company that sold Illinois watches. In other words, "Burlington Watch Company" watches are private label Illinois watches. The serial numbers can be looked up under Illinois Watch Company in any of the standard books, and these watches will be listed as "Burlington Watch Company" grades under the Illinois Watch Company listings.

    I'm sure otehrs here can give you tons more information, but that should get you going I hope.

    Regards,

    Barry

    David:

    There is one exception to what Barry wrote and that is that a small number of high grade Burlington watches were made in Switzerland by Henry Moser. These show up occasionally.

    Burlington advertised heavily in the railroad brotherhood magazines. I've re-posted several of their ads, the Open-Face Burlington Special, the Hunting-Case Burlington Special and a document explaining what the "Trust" is that is mentioned in these ads.
