5cm (50mm) across the case. Waltham model 1888 dating to c1897, 122 years old. Sterling silver fully hallmarked case, Birmingham 1897 A.B (Alfred Bedford), great condition, snap on/off front and hinged rear covers, some minor dings to rear cover, some minor marks and some old jewellers marks, some signs of wear, especially to rear cover. Mineral glass crystal in perfect condition. Dial in great condition, faint, short hairline crack at outer chapter ring XI - XII (11-12) O'clock, no chips, signed "A.W.W.Co Waltham Mass". Blued steel hands, Roman Numerals. The 1888 movement is in fantastic condition, running well and keeping good time. This is a scarce 13 jewel version, reported as 7 in databases as many were of this period. A similar watch of the period was the rare Hillside 13 jewel (14s), of which 8000 were ever made. This could turn out to be just as scarce. Fully serviced.
Presented in a velvet jewellers pouch and presentation box.
Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. Serviced including modern "unbreakable" alloy mainspring.
Servicing is defined as the piece being disassembled, cleaned, inspected and adjusted if necessary. It is then re-assembled and correctly oiled, timed for accuracy and adjusted if required. The mainspring will be replaced and the piece will be bench-tested for at least one day.
I restore all of my watches to a fully working condition. It is my aim to provide a watch that is not only running but working to a usable state. My watches can be worn and used for their intended purpose on a daily basis. The time keeping should certainly be within +- 5 minuted per 24 hours but I aim for +-3 or better. I do offer guarantees, the details of which can be found on my website for Time Pocket Watches. I have many years experience and a vast catalogue of Waltham spares and parts.
My highly detailed photographs show the watch in detail, this level of detail is not normally seen by the naked eye. The watch will look even better in real life.
