Who Made This Watch?

James Russell & Co., Hartford Conn

Comparison of pillar plate with PSB #17053

The 11J Russell has no "peep holes" next to the pallet arbor with which to view the escapment in motion; a very early standard Waltham feature. Russell's click-ratchet bridge and long bridge are a little wider than PSB's. (Note that the 15J PSB has pillar plate jewls.)
