Maybe you should reflect on your collecting goals...
The servicing of your newest watch will be more than twice what is is worth
I know it is hard not to grab up everything you see as a great deal....but education is the best way to avoid these Impulses
This is a great size to wear, too!Quite a nice Bond Street. I have to say I really like it.
... and then there is another lovely Crescent St. movement!Love the fancy ORC dial.
And let's not forget that lovely case, which seems to show a house under construction (?).... and then there is another lovely Crescent St. movement!
Picked up the attached Waltham at the Mid-Winter Regional in St Augustine last month. Love the fancy ORC dial.

A very nicely preserved $106 fully adjusted Howard Model 1862N movement with screwed down top plate jewel settings and Reed's patented whiplash regulator, all quality features that cost extra. (Howard's base quality movement was $58)E. Howard & Co. N Size Model 1862-N movement, Series III.
(Another. Howard.) Serial number 24523, October 1870 date. Single sunk E. Howard & Company dial. Keystone Coin silver case Just cleaned and replaced mainspring. It is running fine. Maybe someday I will find a Howard Hunting case for it.

LOL...yes, is huge. Looks about the size of an anchor shackle!quite like these heavy Keystone nickel cases and have had a few different ones, standard and oversized 16s. Practically bomb-proof. Not sure where that bow came from, though....
Nice watch, Rodney. You didn't mention the recessed hub escape wheel, another quality finishing feature. I believe the escape wheel is recessed on both sides on the Keystone Howard Series 0's, in fact.My new old, E. Howard 1913, Series 0 railroad pocket watch, 23 jewel.
Movement markings; 23 jewels, series O, E. Howard Watch Co. Boston U.S.A. Special Adjustment 5 positions temperature, Pat'd'10. Arrow with Maltese cross. Serial number 1237245. 1913 date. ruby banking pins, Model 1907, run of 800, variation J-hook pins, Lever set, CWC.Co Crescent Extra, swing ring case. No. 1016986. Marginal minute double sunk Howard dial. Runs perfect.
This stood out to me because I have really only seen these in gold letters, the black really stands outMy latest Hampden, 18s 21 jewel The Dueber Watch Co.

I love that Art Deco design work as well. That case back is fantastic.Waltham mod. 1894 grade 210 12s 7j circa 1928.
My first non-round pw. Interesting art-deco design on rear of case which, by the way, is my favorite time period of pocket watches (Roaring Twenties - Great Depression era). Crown is not original and seller suggested that an onion crown was probably the original one. Case brand is Tribune Quality which I never heard of. Last service was in 2008 but it may need service again as it keeps good time but run time is not very long.
My question is the "chromium finish" of the case actually an early version of what is now called stainless steel? It doesn't look chrome plated.

Hi, Rob,That is interesting looking, I'm not sure if I have seen lugs on a 12 size.
