    I found this on Ebay, really liked it, don,t see many of them around. I did see one posted by Fred Hansen.
    21 jewels, adjusted 5 positions, also milled on the plate same spot as Fred,s watch. Pendant set and wind. Mine is in a Sterling silver, Regal case.

    Good eye! I like that one myself. It looks high-grade, including very fine fish-scale style damaskeening that reminds me a bit of the style that is on the exceedingly rare McIntyre Watch Co. movements. Or maybe like some of the Illinois Watch Co. Sangamo and A. Lincoln movements. The narrow, nicely curving bridges, are quite striking as well, and also remind me a touch of the McIntyre movement in the link below. Congratulations on acquiring it.

    Mr Roundel it does have similarities to the watch in the link you posted. I have seen a few Paragon watches, but not many. Nice to see a reply after over 100 veiws.

    Here's another private label with the same plate layout, this one with a 17 jewel adjusted 3 position movement that is marked "Regent" in the area of the pillar plate that is milled on the Paragon watches ...
