NB: One of the last of the Edward Howard movements I shall be posting on eBay over the next few weeks, including some rare and early examples.

Dial with very slight edge chip and mainspring click has gone, otherwise appears complete. Not cleaned by me and not working, but will tick if pressure is put on train.
