Ok Jim & Kerry, this is my last one today.
These are old photos because I took it to a watch repairman to have it cleaned. It was working, but I just wanted to get it oiled and put back. Well I got it back, not fixed with loose parts in it. He said all the parts were there, but didn't have time to fix it. Next thing I knew, he had closed his shop and moved out of state. At least I got the watch back.
Maybe Kerry or you Jim or someone can repair it for me.
Anyway the watch:
This is a New Haven Clock Co. Watch
They started business in 1853
Began making large watches in 1880
Dial Marked:
Below the twelve: New Haven Trade Mark with NEW HAVEN on top of trade mark and TRADE MARK below.
Bottom of dial between the seven & five:
NEW HAVEN CLOCK CO. SOLE MANUFACTURES
Movement inside rim marked: PAT. APL'D FOR
It again is a back wind and back set.
Talking "BIG WATCH"
Case measures 2.75 inches across
Top of bow to bottom of case is 3.85 inches
Case is 1.41 inches thick
Movement is 1.99 inches across
"BIB OVERALL SIZE"
Thanks for looking,
Dave

    Hi Dave,
    This is a very unusual watch, I have to admit that I have never seen one. I can tell by the pictures that there are problems with the mainspring to start.
    I am going to do some more research but I think you have something very scarce.
