I picked up one of these last year at the FL. Regional and it was missing some parts, but I though it was interesting with the horses head engraved on the back and the the dial said "Dan Patch Stop Watch", so It bought it thinking someone would need it for parts. I sat on it and then saw another this year at Chattanooga show. The price was right and it was complete and running so I bought it. I didn't know anything about Dan Patch so I Googled it on my phone and was very impressed when I saw he was the fastest race horse in America and was never beaten in his 10 year career. He wasn't a Kentucky Derby Thoroughbred type of racer but was a sulky racer, which at the time, was more popular than thoroughbred racing. His record time of 1:55 lasted over 30 years His time of 1:55 was never beaten in his career and is also engraved on the case back. I did a search on the MB and didn't find very much but did see mentioned a Bulletin article about the watch. I found it in the Library resources and downloaded it to my computer and read it. It was by Warner D. Bundens, M.D. Past President of the NAWCC from 1975-79. It is a great research article and I learned a lot from it. You have to be a member to access this. http://docs.nawcc.org/Bulletins/1970/articles/1975/175/175_181.pdf Dan Patch owner was Marion Savage from Minneapolis, Mn. who owner the International Stockfood Co., later Savage Enterprises who he sold millions of dollars of Dan Patch related items, including the watches. He contracted with the 2 companies who made stop watches at the time, New York Standard & New England Watch Co. He had exclusive rights to the watches and cases and owned their patents. You had to order the watch from his company. He started selling them in 1910. So we have 2 Dan Patch watches, one by N.Y. Standard Watch Co., last 2 Pic's, and one by New England Watch Co.1st 2 Pic's I am not sure who made the most or sold the most as they were distributed from Mr. Savage's company's.
