Default DENNISON HOWARD AND DAVIS--WATCH, ALL ORIGINAL

all original watch watch, BWCO silver hunting case. Nice quality, even wear on case. Not monkeyed or switched around. These watches are the backbone of any American watch collection-they were made in Waltham and were the fore runners of the great American Watch Co., made in 1854-1856.

$2500.00 ppd
