Ruxton® watches are hard to find and represent a wonderful tradition. Ruxton® is a registered trademark used for watches that were sold by Friedman’s Jewelers, Inc., with headquarters at 101 West Broughton Street, Savannah, Georgia. The fine old Victorian era building at West Broughton and Whitaker Street still stands. Several generations of Southern gentlemen were given Ruxton® watches from Friedman’s to mark special occasions in their lives—graduations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and retirements.
Friedman’s was founded in Savannah in 1920; it was Savannah’s first choice when shopping for men’s watches. Friedman’s grew to become a specialty retailer of fine jewelry, operating stores located in 20 Southern and Midwestern states, before it closed in 2008.
This gracious, fine Ruxton® Swiss watch has a strong running Swiss mechanism that winds, sets and runs with dependable ease.
