    ANTIQUE 1890 AMERICAN VICTORIAN ERA LARGE WALTHAM POCKET WATCH



 

Overview: A large, good condition (135 grams) 1890, Waltham pocket watch

This watch is a large 14 size Bond Street grade, Waltham. The 7 jewel movement is an excellent example, and takes a full wind by the crown and runs till down over a 24 hour period. This lovely watch is a pin set example with the pin located just to the side of the crown

The case is an original AW Co, with a beautiful deep mirror finish to all surfaces, the case has a light edge mark as shown, otherwise very good condition

 Please read on, the movement and case details are listed below

      The Movement: Is an excellent antique Victorian era 1890 example, serial number 4114583, top wind movement. It is in very good condition. This Bond Street grade movement will offer exceptional time keeping, a service for optimum performance is recommended, currently running with a wonderful rich tick

  The Case: Is an original AW Co example, open faced, screw on rear cover and is in very good condition, Some small dents around the edge as shown, still a huge impressive example. The stem and bow ring are firm, top crown button has some light play, perfectly functional. The push on front cover works perfectly and the rear cover screws open and closed on a clean tight thread

  Case Condition: The watch case has some light pocket wear and one small edge mark on the top bezel, a large, heavy early American case

  The Dial: Is a wonderful original porcelain example, some hairlines in the seconds chapter and near the 8 & 11, faint lines which do not detract from this original dial. The time is depicted by elegant Roman style numerals. The steel hands are in good condition, some light wear to the hour hand, the seconds dial is at the 6 o’clock position and is swept by a steel arrow hand

  The Glass: The front crystal is a scarce very thick original example, some edge hairlines on the inner side as shown and surface wear, but an impressive original crystal

  Dimensions: The watch is a large 14 size example, measuring 2 inches across excluding the bow. The watch including the movement weighs a massive 135 grams

In 1850, at Roxbury, Massachusetts, David Davis, Edward Howard, and Aaron Lufkin Dennison formed the company that would later become the Waltham Watch Company. Their revolutionary business plan was to manufacture the movement parts of watches so precisely that they would become fully interchangeable. Based upon the experience of earlier failed trials, Howard and Dennison eventually perfected and patented their precision watch making machines, creating the what has been called the American System of Watch Manufacturing

In 1885 the company name changed to the American Waltham Watch Company (AWWCo). Under this name, the company would produce some of the finest examples of pocket watches ever created

An opportunity to acquire an antique American Waltham watch over 123 years old and still running strongly, an excellent watch from a bygone era, for everyday use
