Here's another Canadian Private-label watch. It's an Elgin Grade 367 (Veritas grade) with a private label from a jeweler in North Bay Ontario who was also the time inspector for the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway.

First up, the face of the watch with bezel attached.

Thank you Larry (and the other contributors) for this fascinating thread. I really think that it could be made into a book. I've been to so many towns featured with these watches.

Going back a few years to page 9 of this thread you talk about Doug's A. Logan private label watch. Some more detail on them is that A. Logan & Co. refers to an enterprise that was owned by an uncle and his nephew: Albert "Bert" Logan and the younger Austin Logan. Bert eventually left or expanded from Greenwood to open shop up in Edmonton. He also took over the Miller Bros shop in in Midway BC, not far from Greenwood, and also along the railroad. Bert later took up a post as a Hudson’s Bay Factor in Little Red River. He lived an adventurous life, but eventually succumbed to diphtheria – apparently we can’t get away from talking about pandemics these days! A great overview of the Logan story is in this article: http://beautifulgreenwood.com/...5-18/feature111.html

Here's an ad appropriate for the month of January
