I am pleased to offer for sale this 1869 timepiece 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 IWC – 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 model that features an ORIGINAL PORCELAIN DIAL designed by the artist handcrafted, GOLD PLATED case and an original pocket watch mechanism (SIZE 16) with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, GENEVA PATTERN, THREE RAISED & SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS, CHATON of REGULATION SCREWS in GOLD and SWAN NECK MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING that dates to 1869. 

 

 

This gorgeous, men’s timepiece features an ORIGINAL perfect sunken white PORCELAIN dial is in good condition, but with several small hairlines and designed by the artist handcrafted of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO specially for this excellent watch. It is featuring a 60 minute checkered outer track border with black enamel five minute Arabic numerals, elegant black main Roman numerals, original blue steel hands and a separate sunken sub-seconds dial with 60 second outer track and "sweep" original blue steel seconds hand. There is signed E.HOWARD & Co – BOSTON below the XII and is decorated with inlay is in flawless condition made by the painter handcrafted. 

 

 

It is a registered design model that features a three piece GOLD PLATED 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 decorated HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING and RED ENAMEL. 

 

 

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a spotless and high grade, manual wind nickel plated lever escapement movement with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, GENEVA PATTERN, THREE RAISED & SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS, CHATON of REGULATION SCREWS in GOLD and SWAN NECK MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING.

 

The movement is clearly marked E. HOWARD & Co. – BOSTON – L with movement serial number #62.796. This serial number dates this watch to 1869, as per published production numbers. The movement has 16S size. 

 

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 gold steel buckle that has a great vintage look to it.

Diameter (with crown):       54.00 mm
Diameter (without crown):  48.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:     42.00 mm
Thickness:                         15.00 mm

 

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

 

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

 

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.
