    Dial and hands for Howard Series II

    Clint, after re-reading again and again, and studying your response against each original post picture, I realize the thought you put to this, and I appreciate that. I think you nailed it on several levels. Awesome.

    Dial and hands for Howard Series II

    Thank you Clint , I did the dissassembly on my series II just the other day finally, and this is very helpful to keep me on the right path. I actually hit on your website as I was researching more just yesterday and found the links back to our NAWCC archives. One specific to this topic and the...

    Dial and hands for Howard Series II

    Bubbling this back up for a sec to see if our Howard gurus can help. Of the pics I posted initially, are any of them correct on the dial for a series II ? I suspect maybe both pics #2 and #3 might be ok. And I think the spade hands, particualarly the diamond/polished tipped spades. Honestly it...

    Dial and hands for Howard Series II

    Thanks John. What year or SN is yours, and if you dont mind me asking, how confident are you on the dial itself being appropriate for the watch ? I have the polished tip hands on an earlier Dennison, they look nice.

    Dial and hands for Howard Series II

    So here we go, I want to get serious about restoration on this piece, although it may be an uphill climb. This is an 1858 E. Howard Series II #2856 I was hoping to get your insights on the correct dial and hands for this watch, I hear finding an original dial will be a bit of a costly treasure...

    Help Donor Banner

    Similar to the probs with the member banner, I see the donor banner isn't quite connected either. If this is an easy fix, it's appreciate some help activating it, or maybe it's best to sit tight and wit for the new SW release - totally fine with that too. I originated the donation from the...

    "Lady Martha 17j illinois hunter

    Sorry to bubble up an old thread here but I was going to link to it anyway. I am looking at ladies watches and thought "named" watches might be a neat twist, with a US Watch "Betsy Ross" and Hampden "Molly Stark", I thought a "Lady Martha" would be a good one to hunt for next. They don't seem to...

    How about posting your glass back salesman/display cases with movement.

    My only saleman case, but I may be looking for another soon for some loose movements, a recent thread mentioned some that might even fit an early Howard series II or III.. But this one is a 1911 Ball-Hamilton Official Railroad 999H. I need new pics, its actually a nice shiny nickel-chrome case...

    E. Howard size N

    Ah, but we're talking Howards, again my bad... But is it 19 or just "N" to be most accurate ? I would think N, with an equivelant as 19.

    E. Howard size N

    So I'm curious now. I did a fairly comprehensie timeline summary of the HDD to Waltham timeline from 1850 to 1867, taking a bunch of stated references and just summarizing them in a bullet list for my own quick reference. One of the documented statements was this, doesn't it define when 18S...

    E. Howard size N

    PatH, just happened to have the 1893 Expo paperwork handy did ya ? Kidding, that's kool and on topic even. Personally I think everyone should have one of the Columbian Expo souvenir case openers, even if a $7 knock-off. (although I love my roached out original) But back to topic...

    Minute Hand: Whip or Stick?

    I just took to easy road to this Pocket Watch Hands: Types and Styles I see "spade and whip" at the top there, but I imagine you have better knowledge than this already, hence your maker speciic inquiry. Edit: Guessing now that you are after parts, and that link it just too generic, but I...

    E. Howard size N

    " the Series IX was made between 1890 and 1895, which puts it in perfect chronological position." You are right, nice. And if I got the serial number right, both this watch as well as H Muir were right there , 1890-1895 I'd be happy to find a case fitting even that well for the Howard N size...

    E. Howard size N

    Here are a couple threads discussing your B II (crown) hallmark, looks to be H. Muhr in Philadelphia, which is an early case maker, earlier than your model watch I beleive with that particular hallmark. (welcome any correction of course) Need help in identifing a pocket watch case H. Muhr's Sons...
