Here is some history I found on the internet.
Gotham was a brand owned by Ollendorf Watch Co, New York, since 1868. Most, if not all, Gotham watches used Swiss movements; some cased up in the US, others imported complete. In the early post-war period, Gotham introduced the Gothamatic with bumper-type auto-winding, possibly a Schild calibre as their hand-winders apparently were. So they weren't cheap rubbish by any means, but not exactly high-grade either.
