E. Howard Wristwatch


Recommended Posts

I wanted to find a Hunter Case movement so that I could use the original dial and not have to get it refinished to match the new layout of a wristwatch conversion. I was lucky enough to find this Hunter case E. Howard 12s movement with a pristine dial. Amazing that the movement, dial and hands are all over 100 years old! The movement also has a "Safety Barrel" meaning that if the mainspring ever breaks, it will not damage the train wheels with the sudden recoil of the spring barrel. Case is 46mm without the crown, but really does not feel that large on the wrist.

Nice - Howard made good movements - and yours is in fine fettle!

Thanks Will!

I try and build stuff that I like, but will be appreciated by others as well. And, There is just something about these vintage movements that I find intoxicating!
