50mm (5cm) across case without crown. 1906. A wonderful gold filled full hunter. The case is an Illinois watch case co 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 cover opens a little past 90 degrees and rear covers open to 90 degrees. Very good condition case with only light marks commensurate with age and a few of minor dings to the rear cover, no signs of wear and no major scratches. The dial is bright and clean with no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham". Roman Numerals, blued steel hands, red outer numbers. The movement is a Waltham model 1899 Riverside dating to 1906, damascened, gold regulator adjuster star and center wheel, screw in jewels and 19 jewelled, running well and keeps good time. Good acrylic crystal in great condition. Complete with a vintage looking matching rolled gold Albert chain. Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. A very nice piece. Recently Fully Serviced, including modern alloy "unbreakable" 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 with a modern alloy type 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.
