    Hi,
    I would very much appreciate any help in identifying the MANUFACTURER of this 'Private Label' Swiss pocket watch movement. The name on the dial and rear of the movement is "C. A. SWANSON & CO.". The writing on the rear of the movement is "C. A. SWANSON & CO., WEST SUPERIOR, WIS., ADJUSTED, 17 JEWELS, 1078249, SWISS". The movement measures 44.65mm diameter, it is lever set, has gold balance screws, 17 jewels, winds at the 3 o'clock position and has a 'cam' style regulator.

    Thank you Enrico and Kevin for your answers, they are very much appreciated!
    Kevin, I forgot to add in the description that the movement is wound at the 3 o'clock position; do I am presume correctly that none of the railroad service / grade watches are wound at the 3 o'clock position (or are there exceptions)??
