Highly Collectible - Pleasing Condition - 1 Year Warranty

One of the iconic American pocket watch companies was American Watch Co., later known as Waltham for the city in which it was founded.

In 1860, as President Abraham Lincoln was elected, the country was in Civil War. Production ground to a halt. However, the company decided to downsize to the lowest possible level to keep the factory open. It worked: Upon his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln became the proud owner of a Waltham watch: Model 1857, grade "Wm. Ellery".*

We are very pleased to offer today a Civil War era Wm. Ellery model watch. Here are some of its features:

  • Handsome Eagle sterling silver case complete with original precious metal papers fully intact

  • Original porcelain dial free of any cracks, chips, or hairlines
  • Large size, measuring a full 54mm in diameter

  • Key wound movement with winding key

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

This a rare opportunity to own an exciting historical timepiece from a prominent American watchmaker.
