Pan American Watch Company in association with the Philadelphia Watch Case Company.

In 1892 Theophilus Zurbrugg purchased the vacant Pavilion Hotel and moved his Philadelphia Watch Case Company into it. The company expanded rapidly and in 1908 Zurbrugg built a new building south of the old hotel.  Although the Pavilion Hotel is gone, the 1908 addition, dominated by a 7-story office building with an 8-story clock tower on the corner, still stands today.
