18, 16s

nickel

3/4 plate

sw only

7-11 jewels (15J ?)

open face only

pendant is part of the watch

Roman or Arabic dials

16s is extremely rare

18s is tough enough to locate in all original, decent condition

a few re-made cases for the 18s exist

probably one of the great early American sleepers, if you can find one
