That's a good question and I have no good answer, I'm afraid. The 1917 prices are not included in the NH catalogue descriptions in Tran. I haven't made a systematic review of available prices in the Waterbury catalogue descriptions, but what I remember is that the prices for the wood-cased crystal regulators were a bit lower than for the metal-cased.Dave T;1073924 said:Pretty nice clock. I always associated New Haven more in the line of everyday (lower priced) clocks. This looks like it might have been top of the line for New Haven?
A good possibility, I suppose. New Haven seems not to have made many crystal regulators. The metal ones are, for the most part, described as "Heavy Metal, Finished in Polished Gold Plate," FWIW.harold bain;1073938 said:Perhaps it had something to do with a shortage of brass during WW1. A substitute so to speak.
