Osaka Watch Co., Osaka, Japan The machinery came from the San Jose Watch Co., which in turn received it from the Otay Watch Co., Otay, Calif. thanks to the lure of this new machinery to Frank Kimball, much to his sorrow and great loss. Interestingly these watches closely resemble Otay Watches, gilt or nickel, American or Japanese writing with one great exception--a few are known in open face. Long considered part of the Otay, San Jose family due to the machinery origin and the US employees that produced these watch movements in Japan.
