    New York Standard Watch Company

    Only one I have - acquired it about 15 years ago as a part of a package deal with an Elgin 16s grade 360. It is in good condition, runs, so I kept it. New York Standard; 18s, 7j, Grade No. 64 (I think) , s/n 3949569, ca: 1902 - 03 (best as I could estimate)

    Hamilton Grade 977, 16 j, 16s, s/n 53204, ca 1897

    Thought I'd kick this thread back up to the top for a quick update. This watch was running when I received it in late July. After receipt of the watch, I sent it to Rob Carter for a COA and installation of a new alloy mainspring. After servicing, the watch has been running continuously since...
