I think it might be a bit more complex. The Waterbury Watch Co. became the New England Watch Co. Ingersoll took over New England; then, Waterbury Clock Co. took over Ingersoll. In 1944, Waterbury Clock Co. became the United States Time Corp., which produced the Timex brand. In 1969 United States Time Corp. became the Timex Corp. Corrections, please. In any event, the New England Watch Co. was in the line of descent to Timex. And now, a moment of silence for John Cameron Swayze, who took a licking and kept on ticking.
