Watch Description

What makes the Indiana 022 unique: The South Bend pocket watch that was used in this conversion was originally manufactured in 1923.  The same year that Time Magazine published its first issue. This watch has some stories to tell and is ready to get the conversations started.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by South Bend Watch Company. We call this model "The Indiana" because the company was located in South Bend, Indiana.

Founded in 1902 by sons of the Studebaker Auto Company, South Bend Watch company started producing high-quality watches in 1905 using equipment and employees liquidated from the failed Columbus Watch Company. While initially successful, the company's use of an "on credit" payment system led to its downfall during the stock market crash of 1929. A fire finally destroyed the original factory in 1957.
