Waltham Pocket Watch Model 1888, Grade 20, 16s, 7 Jewel N. Daily TelegraphI have the pictured pocket watch for sale. Do note this pocket watch is sold as is no return.
Nifty Waltham UK export? Works are U.S. made, case looks to be UK. Neat personalized to Mr J.H. Emsley by the staff of the Northern Daily Telegraph Blackburn, Oct. 26th 1901 - neater to me given my birthday is October 26th though obvious I was not born in 1901 :)
Dial - The dial has a couple of noted small hairlines. The front cover will not screw off so I cannot get a good look at it.
Crystal - Looks original glass with some scratching that will need polished out.
Hands - Look to be in good condition with original bluing intact
Crown - Winds and sets time as it should. Brassing showing on the crown itself
Lever Set - n/a
Bale - Intact functional with no brassing
Works - are relatively clean, could used a light wipe and most likely a good service. Winds, runs and keeps time running about 1 minute behind.
Case - Brassing along the edge of the front rim for the crystal mount and along the case edge starting at the 1 o'clock to the 7 o'clock, deeper ding on the back hinged cover edge opposite the 5 o'clock area and another two light "ding" lines on the surface of the back cover. Case looks to be a UK pocket watch case maker and is a 14K gold filled case.
