50mm (5cm) across case without crown. 1917. A stunning gold filled full hunter. The case is a B&B Royal 20 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. 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 few of minor pin point dings to the front and rear covers, no signs of wear and no major scratches, flat ding to outer side of case. The dial is bright and clean with no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham USA". Roman Numerals, blued steel hands. The movement is a Waltham model 1908 dating to 1917, damascened, gold regulator adjuster star and center wheel, screw in jewels and 17 jewelled, running well and keeps good time. Good acrylic crystal in great condition. Complete with a vintage looking matching rolled gold double Albert chain with vintage looking gold plated stone set spinner fob. Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas present, Fathers day or birthday present. A very nice piece. Recently Fully Serviced, including modern alloy "unbreakable" mainspring.
