    Hyman Berg and Company, Chicago

    Just wanted to share pics of my latest catch. It is a private label Hyman Berg and Company. Size 10, 17 jewels. I've included a picture of a jewelry store in Chicago with the same name. This one is dated 1906.
    Regards

    The post card adds a nice flavor to the mix! Have you figured out the original maker?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    The House of Longines was much more into pocket watches than Omega... I have a Longines book I'll look through for you...

    Re: Hyman Berg and Company, Chicago

    i have been looking at the pink pages and there is a movement by Omega that resembles mine, only difference that my untrained eyes see is that the jewels count is 15 whilst mine is 17.

    Data
    18.5''', Dm= 41.3mm, H= 6.8mm
    15 jewels
    f = 18000 A/h
    power reserve 29h

    Remarks
    open face calibre

    cam disc regulator
    Swiss Patent 27541:

    It's certainly a very nice quality Swiss watch from the early 1900s. It was imported and cased in the USA since Dueber is an American watch case maker. Is there a serial number on the movement?

    There's a serial-number around the winding-wheel, I think, but I can't read it.
