    My collection is small compred to some I know in the NAWCC.I been collecting since 1986 but got more in to it in the 1990's I got more to show.I have slowed down buying watches I am picky at what I buy now I bought a lot of junk at first I only sold a few at a NAWCC mart the one's I had doubles of they were railroad grade but the junk no one wanted and stuff I like and dont want to sell is the stuff they want I have learned a lot since I started collecting watches what to buy and what not to buy.Plus I am a pack rat.And the stuff I past on in the beginning that I liked have doubled in price and I can't afford them now.

    Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy seeing a Howard movement, I guess I enjoy the way the bridges allow one to see the details of the movement. I don't see Howards too often and when I do they're too expensive.

    One last thing, the dial is interesting. It's technically not a Montgomery dial as in a proper Montgomery all the superscript numbers should be upright. I've never seen one like this, I wonder if it was propriety to Howard?

    Hi Ron
    I was at another forum and saw something on Howard and Montgomery dials they said Howard did it differnt so they would not have to pay Montgomery since he had a patent on it.Could be true?
