    Default The Howard Catalog

    I cannot access the online Howard Catalog. This was the web site address:
    http://www.awco.org/seminar2002/howa.../howardcat.htm
    I hope this can still be accessed. Possibly Dr. Geller could help with this.
    Thank you,
    Scott

    Wow! The wayback machine is wonderful. It apparently has a full copy of my site before the crash.

    I created the Howard Catalog, and also the Waltham Catalog and gave that intellectual property to the NAWCC as part of my work as General Chair for the 2002 NAWCC Seminar, entitled "Boston: Cradle of Industrial Watchmaking." However, Tom took control over it after the seminar and put it on his personal website. As a temporary measure, perhaps that might have been acceptable, but it is high time that catalog got moved to the NAWCC website. There have been updates which I have wanted to make, and my requests have been ignored.

    So how does one find out which model of watch they have? My Dad has his grandfathers Howard pocket watch, with a serial number of 1298025. I don't have it in my possession, or I would share a picture of it. I believe I was able to date it to about 1915. I know it is quite thin (at least I think it is) and very classy looking. It also has a beautiful stamped/embossed set of my great-grandfathers initials on the back. He was a dentist in the early 1900's and I know he liked quality things, so I'm sure this set him back a few $$ when he bought it. Anyhow, is there a way to find out more on the watch?

    That is a Keystone Howard serial number made by a completely different company with a similar name. You may find that information in the "E. Howard Watch Co." section of that website.

    Thanks Clint. Took a look at that sight and didn't see a page for Keystone Howard.

    Isn't there a search engine where you can type in the serial number and most likely the maker and get a ton of information on that movement? I know I have seen a site like that but I can't recall the link.

    E. Howard Watch Co. (frequently referred to as Keystone Howard) movement serial number 1298025 is probably a 12-size, 17-jewel, Open-Face, Series 7 movement. You can see a variety of cases styles and materials of these listed on pages 1, 2, and 3 of the 1918 Illustrated Catalogue - C.B. Norton Jewelry Co. listed in the "References" section of the E. Howard Watch Co. Encyclopedia article.
