Watson Brothers Canadian Private Label "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
I picked up a 16S Watson Private Label Watch at an antique shop in Marietta, GA this past Thursday. I am currently out on a business trip and don't have any reference info with me. The dial is marked: Regina; Watson Bros: Calgary. The movement is also marked Watson Brothers; 17 jewel, serial number 3,090,168.

Will advise more later, including pics when I get back home next week.

There are other pictures of Watson Brothers private-label watches, and their store on pages 1, 3, and 6 in the Chapter 185 Photo Gallery under CANADIAN private-label watches.

I had previously looked at the other Watson Bros. watches in the Canadian Private Label section. It is what really peaked my interest in this watch when I ran across it - attached to this post is the picture of the movement. In the following post will be a picture of the dial.

Any help identifying who actually manufactured the movement would be appreciated.

I believe that your watch was made by Omega.
Omega used the trade name "Regina" on some of their low to medium grade movements sold in Canada.
