The company sold the finished movements acquired from the Independent Watch Co.  Those movements had been made by other companies.  The Fredonia Watch Company was sold to the Peoria Watch Co. in 1885, after having produced approximately 20,000 watches.

This example is Serial No. 665, which was among the first three months of production.  The important high grade features are 1) The center pin stripe circle separating the minute track from the center section; and, 2) It is marked “ADJUSTED”, and 3) Full plate nickel!  These three features indicate that Fredonia intended to enter the “Railroad Grade” Market and compete with the highest grades at the time.  18 size, Hunting Model, Lever set, No. 665, “ADJUSTED” around the balance, and “Fredonia Watch Co.”
