    Information on E. Howard watch?

    I am trying to find any background information on a watch for my mother.
    My grandmother passed away last year and my mom found it while cleaning up the house.

    I have found a little info.

    17 jewel movement, serial # is 1073733. which puts it right at 100 years old.
    It also has a marking "PAT D'08"
    On the inside of the case it says "Keystone Extra" and has a serial number as well.

    I've done a little looking and I have not come across any that look like this one. Most have the stem at 12 o'clock, but this one is at 3. It looks to be missing a loop over the crown...

    It's in really good shape for being 100 years old and it still works.
    The hands are a really amazing blue.

    Can anyone tell me anything about this watch?





    Thanks

    I really need to learn how to use the macro settings on the camera...

    I can tell you that it's been recased. This is a hunter-case watch recased in an open-face case.

    I am completely new to this kind of thing...

    How do you set the time?


    From the date of the watch, it looks like it would have belonged to my great grandfather.
    Since it is not original, I may see if a jeweler buddy can make something that would cover the crown and actually carry it.

    I'm assuming it could use a good service & cleaning.

    Where would one begin looking for a place to have it done?
    What should I expect to pay?

    You'll need a new bow for the watch ('bow' is the thing that goes over the crown) and you'll need it cleaned and lubricated etc etc.

    Take it to a professional watchmaker for these services. Jewellers deal with jewellery. Not timepieces.
