Hello:
I inherited a lovely Howard pocket watch. By its serial number I understand it to be WW1 era.
Based on the photos and below information inscribed on the inside, wondering if someone can tell me (anything) about what I have; Possibly its value.
Note: It winds and runs.
Thank you,
Chris

Hi - The watch has been in my family for a century so, I know all about the previous owner(s)!
Wondering if you can tell me (anything at all) about the watch itself. I haven't seen any with this particular (art deco?) design.
It would be nice to know if there is anything special or unique about it, possibly its estimated value for insurance purposes.
Appreciate the response!

I cannot find your watch in any catalog reproductions that I have, but based on the case style and dial I think it must be a fairly late product -- after 1926 but before their closure around 1930. I have a smaller model in a different case, but a similar dial.

Do you mean information on the previous owner of the watch or the watch itself? For the previous owner info, I'd love to help out, if you could provide some more info about them. As for the watch this would be a great start. Pocket Watch Database: Information for American Pocket Watches

possibly its estimated value for insurance purposes.
I've added the value tag to your thread hopefully you will get
some estimates from the members.

Thank you - This page shows my serial# ( 1394682 ) falling in the 1915-1917 band.
Research published in our Bulletin by Selman Berger (December 1998) documents that your watch is the “Tuscan” style of Howard 12-size watch and it was the last 12-size model produced (mid to late 1920s). The web site you used is not correct for this watch.
