    Waterbury Clock Co.

    I just got this old windup clock key at a garage sale. Reading about Waterbury Clock Co. of Connecticut, which closed in 1944, I found this passage:

    As many companies did during World War II, Waterbury shifted gears during the first half of the 1940s to support the war effort. During this period, in 1942, Ingersoll-Waterbury was purchased by a group of Norwegians, who built a new factory for their firm in Waterbury, Connecticut. They also changed the company’s name to the United States Time Corporation, the forerunner of Timex.

    So, what did this company make to support war effort? Something like ammo?
