1944 presentation to a Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation employee.
This is a fine quality 14 K gold watch made by the E. Howard Watch Co., Boston, Massachusetts, made from the serial number (depending on who’s list you look at) about 1915.
The serial number is 1249022.
The case is Keystone Watch Co. marked.
Size 16 and the second hand is in a sunken dial.
Interestingly, the date of the watch and the date of presentation is 1944, no doubt a jeweler’s older stock.
The presentation reads, “Testimonial To Frank Edward Young, Presented By Friends and Members Of Grumman Aircraft Engr. Corp., 2-10-44.”
I have been unable to find any information on Young, but obviously worked for a major producer of U.S. warplanes during WWII.
Condition is excellent, running, and worthy of more research.
