Add in the right touch this timepiece with ORIGINAL movement that was made by most respected in the history of American horology E. Howard Watch Company”. In 1868, an American engineer and watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones who had been a director of E. Howard & Co., in Boston, then America's leading watchmaking company, founded the International Watch Company with the intention of combining the craftsmanship of the Swiss with the modern engineering technology from the U.S. to manufacture movements and watch parts for the American market.

 

It is a CUSTOMIZED WATCH – REGULATEUR model that features a MULTI DIAL with BIKER, STAINLESS STEEL case and FULLY 17 JEWELS original pocket watch mechanism (SIZE 12) with STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, THREE FINGER BRIDGE and BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING that dates to 1921. 

 

This timepiece features a handsome STEEL dial with BIKER is in excellent condition, absolutely no chips of abuse. It is featuring a 60 minute checkered outer track border with red enamel five minute Arabic numerals, blue enameled main Arabic numbering, blue steel Cathedral-style hands and TWO separate dials: a recessed sub-seconds dial with “sweep” blue steel seconds hand and 60 second outer chapter with black Arabic numerals and sub-hour dial with “sweep” blue steel hours hand and black Roman numerals.

The new dial has been professionally updated, and now is in excellent condition. Signed HOWARD – REGULATEUR in black enameled lettering near the 3. 

 

It is a registered design model that features a three piece STAINLESS STEEL case that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. This case, new custom made, fantastic, build specially for this excellent HOWARD movement. The swivel lugs are in great condition while the winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side. The case is sandblasted and has a MATTE finish. 

 

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a spotless and high grade, FULLY 17 JEWELS manual wind nickel finished lever escapement movement with STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, THREE FINGER BRIDGE and BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING.

 

The movement is clearly marked E.HOWARD WATCH Co. – BOSTON – USA – 17 JEWELS – TEMPERATURE 3 POS. – PAT’D’12 with movement serial number #1.394.359. This serial number dates this watch to 1921, as per published production numbers. The movement has 12S size and Series 7 Caliber. 

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the ORIGINAL movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch, but some of the wearable parts on the movement might be replaced, and custom made to fit, since it is close to impossible to find original parts. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time. 

 

It is fitted on a new Handmade of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO 22mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with Matte chromed steel buckle that has a great vintage look to it.

Diameter (with crown):      50.00 mm
Diameter (without crown):  46.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:     41.00 mm
Thickness:                         14.00 mm

 

This cleaned, oiled and regulated antique watch winds and sets very smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

 

Supplied without box, but with Certificate of Seller's Warranty and instructions for care and use of this watch.

 

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
