    Does anyone know of a good source to determine the approximate value of an H.R. Ekegren pocket watch with a Koehn movement? The so called 'bible' doesn't list enough varieties (especially the cases).

    After Ed Koehn took over the Ekegren operation, he retained the name for the top grade items.

    Usually Ekegrens are complicated but a few were simple watches after the Koehn take over. Similary Ed Koehn signed watches are usually simple but some may be complicated.

    Antiquorum has an on-line searchable catalog for auction results. When you get to it, do a search on Ekegen. It will have an estimated range and if it sold, a price realized. IF there is no entry in that box, it did not sell and the estimates were too high. Sometimes you will see the same watch. They usually try twice at their initial estimate before lowering it and it sells. Sotheby's does the same.

    They also show up on Ebay from time to time. Antiquorum prices tend to be higher but the descriptions are usually better and will be consistent.

    Sothebys also has a searchable catalog.

    If you just do a google search on Ekegren most of the useful hits will be linked to Jones-Horan, another auction house, and these too will get you prices realized. I do not recall any Ekegrens that they sold recently, but its worth a look. Their results typically will have 3 or 4 photos.
