What an interesting Circa 1910 to 1913 Waltham pocket watch. This watch is listed for repair as it winds but does not run without a little shaking and then quits when it feel the need. The back of the case is probably the most interesting part reading:

I love antique bits with good stories and this is one waiting to be told if you can identify all the details as it relates to the contest :)
Please do read the entire description and review the photographs! The back of the case was off when I purchased it and I am not quite sure how it screws back on as I did not take it off. The threads don't appear pinched, but I am unable to comfortably put it back so I am leaving it as I purchased it - slightly threaded. There are indication that at some point in its life, someone not knowing any better attempted to "pry" the back off - I assure you, it was not me.
The case is made by B&B Royal and is a 20 year warranted gold case. The case serial number is 6636950 and doeshave age appropriate scratching and the plating on the casing overall appears very solid with no noted brass spots. The watch cystal may be a replacement and could stand a proper polish. The dial is in very good condition. The crown appears to be in good working order. The bow appears to be a replacement in yellow gold tone versus the more rose gold of the original case.
Serial number of the movement is 18057736
