50mm (5cm) across case without crown. 1919. A stunning 21 Jewel high grade, gold filled full hunter. The case is a Dennison 20 year guaranteed (from date of manufacture) each part is made from 2 plates of gold with a plate of composition between them, as good as you get without being solid gold, 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 rear covers open to 90 degrees. Good condition case some light marks commensurate with age, no signs of wear and no major scratches only let down by some very very minor dings to the rear cover. 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 21 Jewel model 1908 Crescent Street dating to 1919, running very well and keeps good time. Features a micro adjuster, gold center wheel and gold jewel settings. All original. Good mineral glass crystal in good condition. Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. A nice piece. Recently fully serviced including an "unbreakable" model alloy main spring. Gift box included.
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 "unbreakable" type and the piece will be bench-tested for at least one day.
