Its incredible to think that you can hold an antique pocket watch in your hand, one that has a mechanical movement that is working perfectly and still in wonderful condition all for under $1,000 such as this antique rolled gold Waltham pocket watch made in 1916. This full gents size pocket watch was made in a rolled gold case which measures 51.5mm across by 70.6mm from the bottom to the top of the bow.

This case displays an engine turned pattern which has such a smooth and sleek feel to the touch. With the original dial displaying numerals, it also has in red the five minute markers on the outer edge as well as the sub-seconds at the bottom. With very sleek hour and minute hands, this is a great dial that is still so easy to read.
