I didn't know Ron was still active in Old Walthams. He wrote the Origins of the Model 1857 in 1995.
Anyone keep up with Ron?

This was his post


Quote:
Does anyone know the whereabouts of early Appleton Tracy & Co pocket watches in the serial number range of 52xx? In particular 5221, 5236 and 5274 have been reported to have survived. Evidence indicates that the number on the underside of the top plate is the original Boston Watch Company serial number. I'm collecting data to define how left-over material was used when the BWCo went insolvent. I'm missing examples for the underside number in the 52xx range. The BWCo number is a little tricky to read with the assembled movement, but it can be seen looking between the plates with a loupe and good lighting. Thanks, Model57 researcher Ron Price

He's been updating the DHD section every so often. I do wish he was able to better clarify jewel counts on these DHD's. Just recently I was able to confirm for the first time that they were indeed made with just 11j. IT was seller of another DHD on eBay, but he was not willing to sell that example.

The only way to confirm jewel counts is to pull the dial off.
