E. H. Flint, c1875-1879 Very little is known of the Flint family except that E. H. Flint watches were patented (September 18, 1877) and made in Cincinnati, Ohio thereafter. Highly unusual designed key wind with a unique feature--the balance wheel is between the plates! Chamberlain referred to this watch as the upsidedown watch, patented (no. 195,268) as the "American Air Tight, Dust Proof Watch." Original dials should be plain, as I have viewed replacement dials signed "Lancaster Watch Co." on these as well as silver plating over gilt on the movements. Almost always seen recased are these standard 18s KWs! Serial numbers are stamped on various plates and parts inside the watch, not visable on the back of the watch.
