A buddy called me about one of his builders having a Gold
watch by Josh Jonson. Once I saw this 17J in gold pair cases,
I made him an offer. He accepted and off for restoration it
went.

It's in American gold cases and E tested above 19K. We place
this 17J at 1826. Josh Johnson started about 1800 and he's known
for Verges, rack levers and levers. This lever has a temp compensation
curb attached to the reg arm and has a Bosley regulator. The dial is
also 18K.

Josh Johnson had an address at 25 Church Street and he died
about one year after this watch went to market in March 1827.
I have 3 other Josh Johnson's, one an 1818 Rack lever. His
factory was located on 25 Church St. This SN# is 7771. It has
a dust cap and it's known as a Liverpool runner. Watch weighs
202 grams and has a 56MM outside case diameter.

Edit.My apologies, I see where I posted this watch some time
back on our private side. Also, outside case is 57 MM and it's
gold chain weighs 22 grams. So watch weight is 180 grams.

Here is my 19J conventional train by the firm of Josh
Johnson in 1842. Dial and case have been replaced.
