Howard 12s Vintage 1921 Double Hinged Case Near Mint Extra-Thin Pocket Watch 3 Adj. 17j
This is a stunning Howard chronometer grade extra-thin double hinged dress pocket watch measuring about 46mm in diameter. The watch is near mint with no brassing and a nearly perfect dial. The dial is silver with silver in-lay and features breguet blued steel hands and black roman numerals - a very nice looking piece. The movement is very clean and dates the watch to about 1917; nicely decorated and adjusted 3 times as well as temperature. Just overhauled, the watch is keeping time within 2 seconds/day. High grade Keystone gold filled case and a thin profile tops this watch off as a great dress up piece. This watch is stem set and wound. There is a slight gap that allows the encased movement to move very slightly inside the watch while shut. Although this does not affect the value or timekeeping, I wanted to disclose it. It is easily correctable by using the correct size rubber gasket if you wish to do so. The hinges are perfect and everything snaps into place tight.
