50mm (5cm) across case without crown. A stunning gold filled half hunter.

 

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.

 

Good condition case, very clean and bright, 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. Fantastic condition case, no marks, dings, dents or scratches to the outside, some minor blemishes and fine scratches inside the covers. Roman Numerals around front window. Acrylic front crystal.

 

The dial is bright and clean,no hairline cracks or chips, signed "Waltham". Roman Numerals, blued steel hands.

 

The movement is a Waltham Vanguard 19 Jewel model 1899 dating to 1908, damascened, gold micro regulator, gold center wheel, running well and keeps good time.

 

Good mineral glass main crystal in great condition. 

 

Complete with rolled gold double Albert chain with gold plated, blank, shield fob and a small brass knife case opener to one end of chain. Presented in a fitted, velvet pocketwatch box with brass trim and a velvet pouch for the chain.

 

Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. 

 

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 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 minutes 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.
