I wish I had gotten to this watch before the case had been scrapped...but this seems to be the way of the world. I collect both American and European private label watches and especially PLs from my adopted home town of Indianapolis, Indiana. Indianapolis was and is called The Crossroads of America because of all of the railroad lines which crossed here. It was the home of The Big Four. Anyway I just thought I would show off my newest and what must be the earliest Indy private label...at least that I have seen. It seems to be a slightly better than average Jos. Johnson, 25 Church St, Liverpool movement with diamond endstone and compensated balance. My guess is that the movement dates to the early 1850s but I would love to hear other opinions. It was made as a private label for W. H. Talbott and Co of Indianapolis, which was an early retailer of watches, jewelry and flatware in Indy. There is still a Talbott Street in Indy. The photos, in case anyone cares were taken with my iPhone 7+ in cloudy window light.
