Circa 1898 waltham pocket watch grade no. 84, model 1883 size 18s and 15 jewels. Watch is ticking like a champ and has lost about 15 minutes over 24 hours. Should be properly serviced and cleaned. With the time loss, may need a fresh mainspring installed. Works look visually good on the back but there are two what are clearly tiny phillips head screws that are out of place. They at some point replaced the original flat head screws in the works.
The dial looks good, needs a proper cleaning, with one hairline stress crack running from the 9 hour to the 48 second mark. Very faint but visible.
Second and hour hand are in fine condition with original bluing, hour hand has surface rust starting in the wide area near the point.
Case itself is dirty, with greening and needs cleaned and polished. It is a Philadelphia Watch Case Co Silverode case. Crown works as it should. Original crystal has a damage area along one side. At one point it must have been filled as the areas is very smooth.
Re-case the works, or use as is.
