50mm (5cm) across case without crown. 1918. A stunning gold filled full hunter. The case is an Empress 10 year guaranteed (from date of manufacture) each part is made from 2 plates of gold with a plate of composition between them, vastly superior to electroplating which only deposits a very thin layer of gold. 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, no signs of wear and no major scratches to outer covers, some minor blemishes and minor scratches inside the case covers. The dial is bright and clean with no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham". Roman Numerals, blued steel hands. The movement is a Waltham model 1908, dating to 1918, damascened, gold regulator adjuster star, gold center wheel, screw in jewels and 17 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.
