50mm (5cm) across case without crown. 1918. A stunning gold filled half hunter with graduated rolled gold Albert chain. The case is a Dennison STAR 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. 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 a few light marks commensurate with age, no signs of wear and no major scratches. The double sunk dial is bright and clean with no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham USA". Roman Numerals, gold hands. The movement is a Waltham model 1908, dating to 1918, damascened, gold regulator adjuster star, 17 jewelled, running well and keeps good time. Good acrylic crystal in great condition. Complete with a matching rolled gold, graduated antique Albert chain and red stone spinner, no wear to chain, in great condition. The chain and spinner are from the same period as the watch and compliment nicely. No makers marks on the chain. Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. A very nice piece. Recently Fully Serviced, including modern alloy "unbreakable" mainspring.

Serviced.
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.

 

Statement.

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.

 

Photography.

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.
