In a thread from 2004, there was some questions about Westfield Watch Company. Joseph Bulova purchased the Westfield Watch Company in the mid to late 20's based on searches done by myself and others (watchophilia.com & Bob Butler). We are speculating that Bulova, a wise businessman, did this in order to offer a "lower priced" watch into the marketplace. Bear in mind that this particular "era" is just prior to the "Great Depression" and the country was suffering from trying financial hardship. The watches produced by Westfield were usually a lower jewel count movement but that didn't mean they were unreliable or junk watches, in fact, quite the opposite. Many have survived to this day and many are found to be running. Westfield adopted the "standardized" parts for their movements made famous by the Bulova Watch Company. In the coming months, time permitting, I hope to expand this thread and include more ads and pictures of my Westfield watches. In the meantime, take a look at the few ads I put in this thread.
