This auction is for a scarce and RARE example of a men’s 1902 made by American Waltham Watch Company of Waltham, Massachusetts, truly the “grandfather” of U.S. horology.

 

It is THE NOBLE DESIGN WATCH that features an ORIGINAL PORCELAIN DIAL, GOLD PLATED 23K CASE and HIGH GRADE original pocket watch mechanism with GOLD WHEELS, GENEVA PATTERN, FOUR SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS, STAR SHAPE MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING.

 

 

This timepiece features an elegant, white, sunken ORIGINAL PORCELAIN dial is in flawless condition, absolutely no hairlines or chips. This dial features a 60 minute outer track border with red enamel five minute Arabic numerals, black enameled main Roman numbering, original blue steel Spade-style hands and a recessed sunken sub-seconds dial with 60 second outer chapter and “sweep” steel seconds hand. Signed WALTHAM in black enameled lettering below the XII.

 

 

It is a registered design model that features a three piece GOLD PLATED 23K CASE that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. The case, new custom made, fantastic, build of WANDOLEC ART STUDIO specially for this excellent WALTHAM movement. The lugs are in great condition while the winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side. The case is decorated HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING.

  

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find the manual wind, high grade, nickel-finished movement has GOLD WHEELS, GENEVA PATTERN, FOUR SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS, STAR SHAPE MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING.

 

The movement is signed A.W.W.Co – WALTHAM, MASS. – 15 JEWELS. Also is signed the movement serial number #11,624,452. This serial number dates this watch to 1902 as per published production numbers. The movement has 16S size.

 

 

This beautiful pocket watch has the original WALTHAM movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

 

 

It is fitted on a new 24mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with gold steel buckle that is vintage style and goes great with this wonderful watch.

 

Diameter (with crown):      57.00 mm
Diameter (without crown): 51.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:    43.00 mm
Thickness:                        15.00 mm

 

This rare watch winds and set smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

 

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
