I look forward to seeing your article.

I myself was also hoping "blackdog" would update us as he has direct knowledge and probably easier access to more info. So now I'm wondering, what happened to him???
First and last posts were on the same day, sad.

Great to hear, blackdog! Thanks for the update.

Unfortunately, I'm not a NAWCC member, so..
I'm wondering if anyone with this issue would like to sell it to me or loan it so I can read it?

A lot of us aren't NAWCC members so if it could be published here as well, I'd enjoy reading it.

Watchdoc, I have no problem with posting the article on vintagewatchforums. However, since it is copyrighted by NAWCC, I need to get their permission to do so. In the meantime I will make you the same offer, give me your email address through "private messages" and I will be happy to send you the article. This goes for anyone else who is interested.

Just came across vintage Harman Nurses watch given to me by an old friend. I believe it is from the 30's? It still works.

This is not a nurse's watch. It is costume jewelry that incorporates a watch. Harman made a great many of these in a variety of different styles. The movements were made in 7j and 17j by A. Schild in Switzerland. This piece is probably from the late forty's or early fifty's. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Among my chronographs this is the smallest, a tiny Harman-branded one-button...works fine. I don't know who made the movement. The case width is only 28mm, less crown.

I recently purchased this Harman triple date moon phase watch.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-AND-EXCELLENT-HARMAN-TRIPLE-DATE-MOON-PHASE-WRIST-WATCH-ETA-1100-CALIBER-/222075469870?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=D62yeS546LHJerjTlEF9rRqPx5A%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
I can't find another example of this watch anywhere. Any thoughts?
Thanks!

I wrote a history of the Harman Watch Company that was published in the Nov/Dec 2014 "Bulletin." My grandfather started the company in New York City in 1933. I have to admit that I have never seen this watch before. The company made many chronograph watches that bring fairly high prices on eBay. Strangely, the prices have no relationship to the intrinsic value. The chronograph movements are cheaply made as are the cases for these watches, unlike most of the other Harman movements and cases. All of the Harman movements were made in Switzerland. The movements without complications were made by A. Schild. The Harman Watch Company did not manufacture watches. It imported the movements and put them together with dials, hands and cases made by US companies mostly in the New York area. The watch you purchased is indeed beautiful. It appears to be in excellent condition and is unique in my experience in terms of complications and quality. Congratulations.
Jack

Thanks for the quick reply, Jack! I tried to send you a message for the article link, but I'm new to this forum and I don't have message privileges yet. Yes, this watch is even more beautiful in person! Again, thanks for the feedback and I'll shoot you a message when I am able to.
Michael
