    Thought I'd post photos here of a neat little 1907 booklet titled "The Newest Products of the Howard".

    This booklet advertises the "new" line of Howard named watches including the bridge model 23 jewel made by Waltham, the 3/4 plate 19 jewel made by Waltham, and two 3/4 plate 17 jewel models by Keystone-Howard. It also gives a look at two case styles and the original mahogony box each Howard watch came with.

    Fred: I just bought one of the 23J Waltham/Howard bridge models. Are there copies or reprints of that little book available?

    Not that I know of, but you could always print the photos here for yourself.

    Nice booklet, Fred.

    The pictured early 3/4 17J models are interesting, too. They differ from the later ones if you look at the click, the pallet bridge and the hairspring stud, which were all eventually simplified. I believe this variation is more unusual than the later one. Does anyone keep records of this and have a clue if they're unusual?

    That sounds like a great research project Peter but I don't know if anyone has studied it yet ... but if you were able to post some pics comparing the two styles it would make a very interesting thread and maybe draw out some information.
