    Question Gotham Deluxe Information

    Hi All,

    I have a Gotham Deluxe wristwatch, which I believe was made around 1948. It was my Grandfather's watch. I don't think it is particularly valuable, I think it is a lower grade watch, but it has a lot of sentimental value to me.

    I was just curious if anyone out there has any information about this brand? Was Gotham Deluxe an actual company, or was this a model put out by particular company at the time? Can't really find much info about these brand watches out on the internet.

    Thanks for any information, I appreciate it.

    Gotham was a brand of the Ollendorff Watch Company. They were based in New York and were active in the late 19th and early 20th century. A contemporary of Bulova.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    That sounds like it's almost certainly 1935! Post some pictures and we'll tell you.

    My favorite Gothams are the Gothamatic and All-Proof. They look like the kind of watches the Batman would have worn.
