    Picture Sanborn - Looking for info on a 17J Incabloc model

    I bought a "Swiss Made" Sanborn 17 jewel Incabloc on Ebay because I thought it had potential. I've been looking for info on Sanborn and can't find a single thing. Could it be that this watch was an advertising piece?

    A quick google reveals very little - but this

    shows the sad end of a watch with the movement marked as 'Sanborn Watch Co.' This is style of marking is usually associated with US companies which imported Swiss movements and had them cased up in the US and distributed them on the American market. It may have been a short-lived venture with only a few examples surviving.

    That is sad. I'll have to treat mine extra well to make up for the loss. Thanks for the info on the maker.
