Since I started CANADIAN Private-Label Watches back in December 28, 2004 it has grown to 30 pages, so I thought it would be a help to post an index to simplify searching through this labyrinth of pocket watches, which I will update periodically.

Great idea Larry. This makes it much easier to more quickly find a particular watch. I must admit though that I have re-discovered some interesting watches while looking for something else.

Larry, I don't know if my watch is already in the database, but I have an 18s Dueber Hampden, 17 jewel, model 3, serial number 969,587, private label for "B. Stewart, Carberry, Man." If not already in the database, please feel free to add it. Thanks. Bruce
