    Neil, Collectables59, has an impressive pocket watch key collection.
    I thought I would show some pocket watches that need a key to wind & set the time, known as Key Wind Watches.
    The first one is a, E. Howard & Co. of Boston, Mass.
    It was manufactured in 1867.
    The center arbor, square post, is for setting the time (standard #5 key).
    The arbor to the right is for winding the watch ( Pinfire Pistol key).
    The majority of my keys are for function only, whereas Niels' keys are very ornate.
    There are 14 different watch key sizes, but 3 or 4 keys fit most U.S. manufactured watches.
    These keys can be attached to your pocket watch chain & used as a fob, as to have it handy when needing to wind or set your watch.
    Thanks for looking,
    Dave
