Case Details This is a especial nice solid gold pocket watch. I wish i could document more photos of this watch.

Because Howard sizes were different than those of other American manufacturers, Howard movements will not fit properly in most "standard" American watch cases. Many case-makers produced cases for Howard watches, often in 14K or 18K gold, and sometimes marked "E. H. & Co." in addition to a maker's mark (see table below).

The following case manufacturers are known to have produced gold cases for Howard.
