There is nothing quite like holding an antique solid gold pocket watch in your hand. From the weight to the character and charm that it has to the superb movements inside, and this antique pocket watch has it all.
Made in 1902 by Waltham, it is made in a solid 18ct yellow gold case that looks and feels superb. The hinges are all in great condition as is the engine turned case. The inside dust cover is beautifully hand engraved with “SNS 28 August 1904” and adds to the character of this pocket watch.
The case measures an impressive 50mm across (size 16 in American terms) and is as solid as gents pocket watches get.
Inside is a superb 15 jewelled Waltham “Riverside” movement with a very high grade regulator, gold centre wheel and Breguet over-coil hairspring – all signs of a very fine quality movement.
It is a crown wind and set movement making it very easy to wind and set the time, all via the crown.
The white enamel dial is as spotless today as when it was made over 100 years ago, and has the traditional Roman numerals with the seconds at the 6 o`clock position, and is so easy to read.
This is a wonderful example of a high grade antique Waltham pocket watch in solid 18ct gold that will always be appreciated.
