I bought an odd watch with three markings. On the movement is etched Dogat Watch Co. On the inner case is etched Era Watch c. And on the dial is printed TRIUMPHANT. It has a one jewel and simple balance wheel. Odder yet-it keeps great time! Anyone ever see one?

I've seen many like it. The time period is around WW1 or later. The case is typical and the movement is perhaps pin lever. It would be the equivalent of a Timex today, a cheap efficient watch. Sometimes if the watch hasn't been used to death, they are remarkable time keepers.
