Jacob Karr, 1860-n.d. Karr was a Washington, D,C. watchmaker and jeweler who held various American patents (1864 & 1865), including 2 different on chronometer escapements and at a later date three on chronographs (all dated 1882). His movements, 18s, KW, gilt, half plate movements appear as English ebausches with his patented chronometer (later improved) escapement inserted. Several of these have been examined and at least two have winding indicators. One particular example has a dial that reads "American chronometer!" Regular, standard US movements have been seen with his name on them (jewelers' contracts).
