Jewels
21 extra-fine jewels, all selected pigeon-blood rubies except the oriental sapphire pallet stones. Balance, pallet arbor and escape wheel have cone pivots, revolving on ruby cap jewels.

Balance, Escapement and Safety Barrel
Celebrated Howard Balance Wheel, specially hard tempered, will not knock out of true with the jar and vibration of most severe use. Double-roller escapement and recessed steel escape wheel, insuring extreme light weight. Patent safety barrel has exposed stop-work which prevents strain on spring from overwinding.

Dial
Dials are hand-made, of finest first-quality enamel, with distinctive Howard hour and minute figures.
