BRIEF HISTORY OF CLINTON WRISTWATCH

Clinton Watches has a very poorly documented history.  The Clinton Watch Company was founded in 1922 in Switzerland by a immigrant Russian Jew named Wein. The company was passed down from father to son for several generations and was a major manufacturer of quality Swiss timepieces through the 1950's.

The Clinton Company ceased from manufacturing during quartz era when Japan made quartz watches flooded the market.
