McIntyre Watch Company, 1909-1911 This short lived company was the genius of Fred MacIntyre and Charles DeLong. Set up in Kankakee, Illinois in 1909 less than 10 watches reportedly were made during an 8 month period. Charles DeLong was one of the greatest American watchmakers ever and went on to invent and perfect his famous Delong escapement with upright pallets seen in Illiniois and Hamilton watches.
