Antique rolled gold Waltham pocket watch made in 1916.

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. Rolled gold, not to be confused with gold plating which is much less durable and long lasting, is a process where the gold itself is layered over a base metal then bonded together using heat and pressure and made into various items such as jewellery and of course pocket watch cases. The major advantage it has over gold plating is that because it is gold on the outside, it can be both engraved and polished, whereas this can not be done with gold plating. 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.

Inside is a 17 jewelled manual wind movement by Waltham that has been completely serviced, runs perfect and comes with our twelve month warranty.

Perfect for a gift or for someone who is after an affordable genuine antique pocket watch that has been serviced and runs great, this antique pocket watch certainly ticks many boxes.

Description

Antique rolled gold Waltham pocket watch made in 1916.

A brief history on the Waltham company:

The Waltham Watch Company was formed in 1850 under the name American Horologe Company. Over the years it went through a series of name changes such as the Boston Watch Company (1853) and American Watch Company (1859).  In 1885 it became knows as the American Waltham Watch Company and finally in 1907 it became knows as the Waltham Watch Company (WWCo)

In addition to using grade numbers, Waltham also used many grade names on their watches. These names were often the names of Board members, company investors, or other prominent individuals. The grade name basically designates the model and/or level of finish of the watch. Some of the more popular Waltham named grades were: Appleton Tracy & Co., William Ellery, P. S. Bartlett, Crescent Street, Riverside, Central Park, Premier, Broadway, Royal E. Robbins, Vanguard, Bond Street, Sterling, Royal, Maximus and Colonial.
