    Please post your United States Watch Company (Marion) private label watches in this thread. When posting, please include photos whenever possible (obeying copyright law, of course). For the description, please provide the serial number, model and grade information, and any information you have obtained about the retailer who's name appears on the watch. The more information, the better. We would like to make this more than just a list. It will, hopefully, become a prime resource for private label research. Thanks in advance to all who contribute!

    51022 - 'John Robson, Brooklyn, NY'. My guess is that this is a S.M. Beard grade as that is what the run seems to be made up of.

    Dave,
    I love the United States Watch Co. watches. I don't have any in my collection but I hope to acquire a watch or two someday. The detail on the balance cock of the John S. Robson watch is just fantastic. Thanks for showing these.
    Scott

    I owned the Robson watch or one from the same run, years ago.

    Ditto for me. I've tried bidding on a couple that were up for sale this past week but lost out on both.
