The Grade 500, and its open face equivalent the Grade 505, were Rockford's finest quality 16 size movements. This example was owned by James Willis Taylor, a prominent Republican politician that served as a U.S. Representative for the state of Tennessee, and some additional information on Taylor can be viewed at the following Wikipedia link ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Will_Taylor

APW - Hamilton, Grade 974, 17J, "D.B. Raff, Jeweler, Thomas, Okla." marked dial, 16S, unusual HC with threaded (rather than hinged) rear lid, case appears the original to the watch despite the atypical orientation of an OF mvt in a HC with pendant at 12 position, case with attractive floral engraving detail, fancy bow, presentation engraved inside rear, white enamel SS dial, SW-SS, nickel damascene, s#859320. Oklahoma is among the scarcest states to find among private label marked watches, and Thomas is a small railroad town (approximately 1200 population) in the Western part of the state. This example is made more interesting by its scarce hunting case with threaded rear, and the fact that this hunting case unusually appears to be the original pairing to this open face model movement.
Condition: Mvt: Ticking somewhat sluggishly on a full wind, overhaul recommended, excellent cosmetic mvt condition overall, bright lustrous surfaces, some micro-fine scratches, one case screw with substantial oxide, regulator spring with some oxide, larger winding wheel with a very small oxide spot; flawless dial; fine hands, minute and seconds-hand have some bends; case shows very light wear, dent or ding to band at 5, engraving detail with mild reduction, small spot of wear to brass to reverse of pendant below crown; tight bow, crown shows medium wear; good glass crystal with glue excess at its seat.

APW - N.Y. Chronograph Watch Co, New York, time-only watch with center-seconds, 15J, 16S, gold-filled OF recase with attractive engine turning and engraving detail, white enamel dial, SW-LS, mvt marked "Adjusted," gilt mvt, s#174834. A good example of this scarce watch, it is believed that at most approximately 1000 examples of this 16 size N.Y. Chronograph Watch Co. model were produced with known examples having serial numbers dispersed through the 174,001 to 175,000 range. This example, like nearly all observed of the 16 size model, has a main plate that was machined to accept a chronograph mechanism but is lacking chronograph components having been finished as a time-only watch with center-seconds rather than as a chronograph. For further excellent info on this style of watch as well as others by Manhattan Watch Co. and N.Y. Chronograph Watch Co., we recommend Michael C. Harrold's excellent two-part article in the April and June 2010 issues of the NAWCC Bulletin.
Condition: Mvt: Running, fine cosmetic mvt condition overall, scattered fine to micro-fine scratches, machined to accept a regulator spring but none is present; dial with cluster of perimeter fractures at 3, some scattered hls, small edge chip under bezel near 1; excellent hands; case shows little wear, ding near center rear, good engraving detail, small notch filed to outer lip of rear presumably from a past testing for gold content; tight bow, crown shows medium wear; glass crystal with some dings below-left of center.

EPW - Ulysse Nardin, Locle & Genéve, Corps of Engineers USA, mvt produced by H. Moser & Cie, 51mm, .800 silver OF original case marked "Property of Corps of Engineers U.S.A. No. 11366" to rear, signed silver cuvette, white enamel SS dial, SW-SS, lever escapement, 15J, gilt mvt with "H.M. & Co." marking in shield for H. Moser & Cie, s#30919 (though the "1" digit is overstamped over a "0"). The Corps of Engineers marked watches were supplied to the American Expeditionary Forces (A.E.F.) between 1917 and 1919. European made examples were equipped with silver cases that were chemically blackened to remove their bright silver sheen, as a shiny silver case could potentially reflect light and thereby reveal a soldier's position. In modern times this original chemical coating is more often than not mostly or completely worn off with only splotches remaining of darkened areas around the hinges and near the pendant, but notably this excellent example retains nearly all of its blackened finish. The largest contract for these watches was filled by Ulysse Nardin who used movements of their own manufacture as well as used movements subcontracted from three other makers (International Watch Co., Movado, and H. Moser & Cie.) that were supplied to the A.E.F. as Ulysse Nardin labeled watches. It is believed that Moser supplied approximately 1300 watches for Nardin's contract with the A.E.F., this info being found in Thomas Koenig's excellent March 2014 NAWCC Bulletin article titled "Watches of the American Corps of Engineers."
Condition: Mvt: Ticking somewhat sluggishly on a full wind and with excess escapement noise in some positions, overhaul recommended, nearly mint cosmetic mvt condition overall, superb gilt tone, some micro-fine scratches; dial with losses of luminous material from some of its hour numerals (including the entirety of 12 and 1), some surface dirtiness, otherwise flawless in visible portion; fine hands, hour with loss of nearly all of its luminous material, minute with rusty tip; case shows very little wear, no dents or dings, excellent contract marking detail, blackened finish is substantially intact with its main area of loss being the pendant, case rear and cuvette open a small bit short of 90 degrees (to approximately 80 degrees); tight bow, crown shows little wear; good glass crystal.
