    Huge N sz (18) E. Howard & Co. Series IV 14K Gold Hunter Case Pocket Watch
    This huge 14K solid gold hunter case timepiece displays true to form Howard quality throughout. Leaf and flower patterns and an uninitialed shield decorate the front cover. Similar patterns along with a lakeside cabin and sailboat scene are displayed on the back cover. The center ring or frame of the case features a combination of readed and beaded designs. Although the case shows normal pocket wear from daily carry, the designs are worn but still visible. In spite of the wear, the case has remained very tight and well cared for. There are no dents, dings or deep scratches anywhere to be found and the case faces up very nicely. The front cover springs open sharply when released and stops just shy of 90 degrees as it should. The back and dust covers open in the same manner. The hinges are tight with no play or wobble in them at all. A readed ring surrounds the dust cover and all covers close tight leaving no play or gaps at all. The pumpkin style crown is sharp and the bow is tight. The case is marked B. W. C. Co. This case was manufactured by the Brooklyn Watch Case Co. The single sunk, white porcelain dial is marked E. Howard & Co – Boston. Black Roman hour chapters along with minute marks surround the dial and blue moon style hands center the dial. I can find NO hairlines, cracks or chips in the dial at all and the glass crystal is scratch free and set in a readed bezel. The N size (18), 15 jewel, Series IV, stem wind and set, Nickel, 3/4 plate movement is bright and beautiful displaying typical, E Howard superior quality! The plates are bright and crisp. Gold screw down jewel settings, bright blue plate screws and detailed damaskeening all highlight the movement. It is signed E. Boston – N. The serial number 49451 dates this piece back to circa 1880. The case covers are thick and heavy in gold and this timepiece is substantial when held in hand. Overall measurements of the timepiece are 58mm (2 1/4″) wide x 82mm (3 1/4″) from the top of the bow to the base of the case x 16mm (5/8) thick. Exact total weight of the watch is 161.5 grams (5.70 oz)! The watch winds and sets smooth. It is running strong and keeping excellent time. This timepiece was obviously carried on a daily basis. As you hold this piece in hand, its pretty easy to overlook the wear when noting how solid the case and hinges have remined. Most watches of this caliber and quality have been hoarded away in private collections. I search the market regularly for gold timepieces and watches like this rarely pop up anymore. I will also gladly consider any offers that you may wish to make. Feel free to contact me with any questions and thanks for looking! I will have several wrist and pocket watches of various quality listed in the coming days. Please take a look at my other listings for a nice variety.
