I have searched the site and some other places and can't come up with much information on the NYS.
I would like to be able to look up a serial # and have some parts information too.
Any and all information will be appreciated.
Patrick.

New york parts website (Cas-KerCo.)

New Your Standard Pocket Watch Parts

There are three pages.

I think we had a brief discussion a long time back about NYS info Patrick, it is very hard to find. I have not seen a serial number list during my forays through out the internet searches or in any books, as for parts some of the major parts suppliers did have a small section occasionally on some of the most needed material, Swartchild was one of these with parts listings for staffs, jewels, levers and hands etc.

Cheers
Bila

Dave, the New York Watch Co., Springfield (A predecessor of Hampden Watch Co.) is not the same at all as the New York Standard company.

OMIGOD!!! That entire 764 page Purdy is downloadable for free! It contains pictures and parts of MANY, MANY US-made and SWISS Pocket watches. There is no copyright of record. This needs to be re-printed! I tried the download and it did not finish, but the pages are all there.
