Equipment in Demand
George T. Algie, manager for the E. W. Reynolds Co. in San Francisco says that since he has been connected with the tool and material business he has not seen such a demand for modern equipment from horologists. He points in particular to the large sale of watch cleaning machines and friction jeweling tools. In addition to fine tools the up-to-date watchmaker is now buying material more systematically. Instead of purchasing various items and dumping them together in a box, even the repairer who operates on the smallest scale now uses the regular watch factory cabinets.
Unbreakable crystals in colors are items featured exclusively by the Trojan Unbreakable Watch Crystal Co. This company reports that its merchandise is being marketed not only in the United States but also in many foreign countries, and claims the distinction of originating color in commercial watch crystals.
