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.

A history of the Harman Watch Company was published in the Nov/Dec, 2014 edition of the NAWCC Watch and Clock Bulletin. by blackdog.

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.
