A booklet I have titled, Howard Watches Catalogue No. 10., Published by E. Howard Watch Works Established 1842 The Keystone Watch Case Co., Prop. describes this Howard 16 size 17 Jewel as:
"A closely adjusted time-piece, dependable despite extremes of heat and cold and the jar and vibration of daily pocket use. Pendent setting only.
17 jewels---selected rubies and sapphires. Celebrated Howard Balance Wheel, specially hard tempered to resist jar and vibration. Double-roller escapement and steel escape wheel.
Adjusted to three positions, temperature and isochronism; cased and timed in its own case before leaving the Howard factory."
