The Store With A Reputation
THE WATCH STORE
This store almost merits the name of The Watch Store, because of the large
and varied stock of cases and movements to be found here. The strong points
of our watch stock are its size, beauty and the high quality of every case and
movement we sell. As a matter of course, we sell only standard products from
the world’s greatest factories, and there is not an unreliable, uncertain case or
movement in our store. We know the goods and sell them for just what they
.are, at just what they are worth.
The extent of our watch stock frequently amazes our
customers. They do not expect to find in a small city the
line we carry constantly in stock ; hut the stock is here,
and we desire to sell it, and it will be our pleasure to show
the goods to all callers. Any person wishing to buy a
fvatch case or movement will not hesitate long about giv
ing us an order, after an examination of our display.
