Circa 1883 Waltham P.S. Bartlett Model 1883 17J size 18s Pocket watch for repair. Pocket watch does not run. Details to follow:
Works: The works look relatively clean. Should be properly cleaned and serviced. The watch winds and winds and winds indicative of a broken mainspring, something cheap and that should replaced when a pocket watch is serviced otherwise. I see no other indication anything is obviously damaged or broken in the works.
Dial appears to be in vg condition for the age - should be properly cleaned - with two small hairline fractures. One runs through 12 o'clock to the edge at an angle - eye visible. One runs through the 8 o'clock visible 10x hard to see otherwise.
Hands Most of the original bluing is in place. The minute hand has some rust visible under 10x near the point and the second hand has some losses.
Crystal looks to be original, has some scratches and imperfections that will need to be polished out.
Crown and bale have lost most of the plating
Case is a fancy case made by keystone watch case co j. boss case, gold filled 10K, and a 15 year case. A lot of plating and case wear is prevalent on the scalloped housing itself. Decorative etchings on the back cover showing wear consistent with age. I believe this fancy case is work reworking and replating...but what do I know :)
