    I came across someone selling a Leonard Watch Co Boston watch. Dollar watch variety. But for some reason I find little to no information about the company. Time in business, total production, models, etc.....nothing.

    There is a letterhead on ebay and every now and then something pops up but still very little info. Can someone please help out? Is this like the Manhattan Watch Co situation where they made lower cost watches and not many survived?

    Interesting. I see a few out there but the majority are not running.

    It seems to be a New Haven brand, just judging from the few watches whose movements have been shown, apparently established ca. 1911 for selling and distributing watches. The movements are a match for the plates in Townsend's book on dollar watches and carry patent dates found on New Haven dollar watches from the early 1900's.
