full plate


first model--Arthur Wadsworth's patent Keyless watch (1866)--at least three variations known and all are hunting style


all other grades are key wind (Biven, Fellows and The Newark Watch) and have "Patent" (barrel) on the barrel bridge

Many private labels and dealer names are on these movements

Edward Biven grades should have Edward Biven signed dials; others, have Newark Watch Works dials

Serial number run from 2-3000 to 11000+; some overlapping with Chicago Cornells
