50mm (5cm) across case without crown. A scarce gold filled full hunter. The case is a Dennison MOON 20 year guaranteed (from date of manufacture) each part is made from 2 plates of 10ct gold with a plate of composition between them, vastly superior to electroplating which only deposits a very thin layer of gold. Features the Waltham fish logo inside the rear cover. Extremely good and 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. Only very light marks commensurate with age, no dings or dents. The dial is bright and clean with no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham". Roman Numerals, blued steel hands. The 17 jewel movement is a Waltham model 1897 "PEER" dating to 1915, low production run of 700 and only 1050 were ever produced (some of which were open faced type), damascened, adjuster star, running well and keeps good time. Good mineral glass crystal in perfect condition and unusually thick and strong for a hunter type crystal. 

Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. A very nice piece. Recently Fully Serviced, including modern alloy "unbreakable" mainspring. 

Presented in a luxury, fitted, brass edged, velvet pocket watch box in red.

 

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 with a modern alloy type 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.
