    Jon, I think I should disassemble it to see exactly how they made so thin.. I had another example of a thin one a long time ago, it was quite a project reassembling it, hence my hesitation .. On this one you can see the typical Swiss adjustment for the crown wheel positioned pretty far in...

    Jon, as far as I can see looking between plates it is a verge.. .. Unless another type of escapement has the crown wheel and contrate wheel..... At some point I should disassemble, and clean it, but it runs fine when wound ... When set up correctly Would the stop work provide the pre load to...

    I think I have my first 22k English watch and case... The information I have indicates that but would like some expert opinion... The case is marked as the photos show .. Letter date is rubbed but looks like the London letter date for 1857.. Makers mark AS in an oval, which I feel is Alfred...

    I found another, not quite the quality of most of the others... but its has a verge escapement .. Distance between plates is 1.88 mm .. Unusual plate lay out, appears to be Swiss or French... No makers name except the reference to LePine on brass dust cover .. Setting from the rear... 57mm...

    Richard Kevitt Rotherham's apprentice watch?

    Graham & John, I assumed these full plates setting from the back were an attempt at reducing the overall thickness of a watch ....With the cannon pinion flush with the minute hand, you reduce the height of crystal needed ... Any thoughts on that ?

    Richard Kevitt Rotherham's apprentice watch?

    John, I will defer to your more through research on the case maker... I was reading my interpretation as I had it written on the hang tag many years ago... The inner dome (dust cover) is gilded brass, in pretty nice condition for all the years.... I would guess it has never been exposed...

    Richard Kevitt Rotherham's apprentice watch?

    Here you go... I have a couple more examples of winding and setting full plate watches from the 1830’s...The rear inside dome is spring loaded, and a small lever on the inside band is used to release the catch ..

    Richard Kevitt Rotherham's apprentice watch?

    An example of this type of case which I feel is very original to the movement.. The front bezel is not hinged and does not open .. The case is clearly marked With a C in the proper cartouche.. for 1818 and case maker Charles and Jeremiah Mince 59 Banner Sq St. Lukes.. Richard Powis is listed as...

    Dial and hands for Howard Series II

    Randy, not sure, but I have always thought the polished tip spade hands were correct for the earlier Howards. They are out there, but they also were made for standard 18 size watches rendering those hands a bit short to reach the appropriate track..

    1859 Appleton Tracy model 57

    This dial is a lot earlier, but these are the size Roman numerals that are usually seen on earlier Mdl 57’s.

    1859 Appleton Tracy model 57

    I agree the dial needs the larger Roman numerals to be that early ... the case dated by the inscription could be original..it generally does not have features seen on cases from 1859, ie the pendant pusher and the overall bulk ...... It is a nice movement....

    Greg, would you feel that this dial on a 21j 149 is a switch ?
