When you hold a genuine antique pocket watch in the palm of your hand, you not only get a sense of its history, but also get to feel the solid heft thanks to the case material as well as the mechanical movement inside, and this antique Waltham pocket watch feels fantastic to hold and admire. Made in a solid 14 carat yellow gold case made for Waltham by J. Depollier and Sons in 1918, the case measures 43mm across by 54.5mm to the top of the bow, and thanks to its slimline case, it will sit perfectly in the pocket as well as the palm of your hand. The dial is all original and has achieved a lovely soft patina and displays both Roman numerals as well as the seconds at the bottom and is still very easy to read. Opening the back reveals two wonderful features - firstly the fantastic 17 jewelled crown wind and set Waltham Ruby movement which has undergone a full service and comes with our twelve month warranty, and secondly the most amazing pierce worked movement holder which is just as beautiful as the movement. This type of case is called an "Opera watch" and was produced by Waltham for only a few years. From inside and out, this is a wonderful antique pocket watch that will continue to look and feel perfect well into the future. Stock# W1529 Maker: Waltham Circa: 1918 $Sold.
