Welcome to the boards. By the number you gave would make it a Keystone Howard made about made about 1907. If you will post a picture of the works someone will be able to give you more infomation.

Hi mark:

The rate of production of Keystone-Howard watches was not always a constant. Thus, serial number vs. date tables that are based upon dividing the overall range of serial numbers by the total years the watches were in production just don't apply. This means that determining the date of a movement is very difficult beyond a few key dates. Having said that, the 1907 date that Bill B mentioned isn't too bad although, it might have been built as much as three or four years later.

Would you please tell us if it is pendant or lever set? Also, what are the markings on the case and the movement?

Thanks in advance for the information,
