    O'Maire movements

    I've been looking through my box of "non-working and probably not worth getting fixed" watches - partly to identify the movements.

    Two of them seem to have O'Maire movements - as listed in Bestfit but seemingly nowhere else.

    First is an Omer (kinda like O'Maire) and the movement is marked OM 116.

    The second is a Pontal - and the movement is marked O.Maire Inc (note the full stop, not an apostrophe). The import code is WXO which is given as Waltham in my Shugart.

    Anybody know anything about O'Maire?

    There's another mystery one in this thread: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/hialeah-232607.html

    And this snippet http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=B...ed=0CDUQ6AEwAg

    shows them as a New york firm incorporated in 1919.
