This one has been lost on the premises by Watch Repair & Co.

I have five questions into the watch company with zero response
as to the watch, that was pending an estimate. They are located
in NY,NY. So as a backup watch Co., it's back to England.

The serial number of the movement is #1534. From this outfit I did
get restored, one Lewis Samuel 17J and an 11J chronograph by
Henry Wolfe.

I have left the main thread post free, as it resides for perhaps another
John Jackson Liverpool example in the future.

Edit, also called on the phone, the watch specialist for estimates would
not return the call.

Well, according to Watch Repair & Co. they left an estimate via voice mail
on this 14J rack lever. I had sent them 4 emails asking about the watch
throughout August, no response.

I asked them to proceed with the work. The watch thread I left dormant
and will continue to do so until the watch arrives back in KY.

Nick - 1000ml south of Dorset it's September, I thought date change could only occur with shifts in longitude - I foresee there is a name to be made in solving the "latitude problem" ;)

oh yes, senior moment. I kept thinking it was written in American but then decided it wasn't. I need a different watch, this one just has the day of the month on it.

Thanks team! Both myself and Watch Repair & Co are on Eastern Standard Time USA.

Now I'd like to find a good Harrison original!
