WELCOME! PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION AND TERMS THOROUGHLY BEFORE BIDDING.
You are bidding on the ANTIQUE E HOWARD & CO BOSTON SPLIT PLATE 16 SIZE (L SIZE) POCKET WATCH MOVEMENT pictured below.
This doesn't run. I can't get the balance out of the bottom pivot hole (in pillar plate) to have a look at it. It doesn't wobble or seem loose but also does not turn freely - maybe it needs a clean or maybe it needs something more. Could the pivot be jammed too far in the hole? I don't know. Maybe gunked up. The dial with some hairlines. Original hands it looks like. Sort of rare movement!
I ONLY GIVE FULL REFUNDS IF AN ITEM IS RETURNED IN ORIGINAL CONDITION. I DO NOT GIVE PARIAL REFUNDS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. THE ITEM HAS TO BE RETURNED TO ME.
REST OF THE WORLD (YOU MUST READ THIS IF YOU ARE FROM ANYWHERE OTHER THAN THE U.S.A.) $35 EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL - there may be other options depending on your country!
Note that to certain countries there is a cap on insurance coverage when shipping (and insuring) by US Postal Service, FedEx, and some other carriers. Additionally some countries prohibit certain commodities from being shipped into their ports. By bidding on this item you understand and agree that I, as the seller, am not liable for loss or damage beyond the maximum insurance coverage I am allowed to purchase for your destination. I am also not liable for delays, seizures, or returns to sender due to your country regulations. In bidding, you are releasing me from liability for actions caused by the policies of your country. Also note that the third party insurer has a maximum of $1000 coverage available for purchase to select destinations. Not all countries are insurable destinations through the 3rd party insurer. Shipping times: registered mail is very safe but can take up to 4 or 5 weeks for delivery due to the way it is handled enroute. Normal first class international is a little faster and Priority & Express Mail are faster still. If you require fast delivery please consider a quicker method of shipment. It will cost more. If I have to ship your item by Registered Mail you agree and understand that it may take 4 or 5 weeks to reach you. I don't appreciate having disputes initiated against me through PayPal before this amount of time has elapsed. If you can't wait - don't bid (or pay more for faster service).
eBAY NO LONGER ALLOWS ME TO OFFER PAYMENT METHODS OTHER THAN PAYPAL BUT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PAYING VIA ANOTHER METHOD PLEASE ASK. I USUALLY WELCOME IT.
PLEASE ASK BEFORE BIDDING if you have zero or little feedback (5 or less) or if your feedback rating is less than 95%. For those living outside the U.S., please remember that shipping costs can be high and that you are responsible for any and all customs duties & tariffs. Please don't ask me to declare a lesser value for shipments or to alter the description of contents.
In the rare event that I make a 2nd chance offer it will only come through the eBay messaging system and from my ID.
