52mm (5.2cm) across case without crown. 1893 125 years old. A stunning gold filled half hunter. The case is a Dennison 25 year guaranteed (from date of manufacture) each part is made from 2 plates of 14ct gold with a plate of composition between them, vastly superior to electroplating which only deposits a very thin layer of gold. Very clean and bright throughout, all hinges are good, all covers open and close well. Front cover pops open with a depression of the crown, as it should. Front and rear covers open to 90 degrees. Very good condition case with only light marks commensurate with age and a minor ding to the front cover, no signs of wear other than minor scuffs to one side and no major scratches, some light scratches inside dust cover. The dial is bright and clean with no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham". Roman Numerals, gold coloured hands. The movement is a Waltham model 1888 ROYAL, dating to 1893, damascened, micro regulator adjuster, screw in jewels and 15 jewelled, running well and keeps good time. Good mineral glass crystal in great condition. Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. A very nice piece. Recently Fully Serviced, including modern alloy "unbreakable" mainspring.
