The term “mint condition” is a term that is too often used by many and very rarely means what it means. It is because of this, that we ourselves do not often use this term…….until you get something like this.
A perfect mint condition solid 14ct gold Waltham pocket watch from 1886.
The moment you touch this pocket watch case, you can feel how sharp the engraving on the case is. From the side, the case closes without so much as a gap anywhere around it. The case is what is called a Size 6 and measures 38mm across.
This is a pocket watch that has had very little use in its life, and considering its age, is truly remarkable.
The movement is a 13 jewelled crown wind movement with a lever set for changing the time and runs so perfect and smooth and keeps perfect time.
The white enamel dial is in pristine condition, with no hairline cracks or damage at all.
Overll, if you are after a prisitine pocket watch, then really consider this one, because in this condition they don’t come up very often.
