Pocket Watch, E. Howard Watch Co.

<< >>
Description
Made about 1914, this watch—both case and movement—were manufactured by the Keystone Watch Case Company. Keystone had bought the rights to use the Howard name, and the watch is marked: "E. Howard Watch Co. Boston U.S.A." In a 10k gold case, the nickel movement with serial number 1183943 is stem-wound and set with a lever at the side of the case near the dial’s numeral one. The style of the dial—easily-read bold black numbers, minute marks and hands—evolved for railroad watches.
