George P. Reed, 1868-n.d. Boston and Malden, Massachusetts. One of the most inventive watchmakers in the history of US watchmaking, George Reed sustained a great reputation in and around the greater Boston area (Roxbury, Boston, Malden) for decades first as an employee with the predessors of the great American Watch Co., then Edward Howard, and ultimately is own small business after 1865. He held about two dozen patents and produced several types of chronometers, 16 and 18s lever movements and KW & SW watches with winding Indicators in both sizes. Early Howard collectors are familiar with his patented main spring barrel safety mechanism signature on most early KWs.
