This one is the first production of the last Waltham Maximus 16 size rr model. It is interesting because of the unusually fine triple hidden hinge heavy solid plain rr style gold case. I have seen thousands of nice cases, but not this one elsewhere. Marked D.D.& D. Not the sort that would normally get scrapped. However, at the recent NAWCC national annual mart, officials allowed scrap buyers. They were paying 95% of scrap value for hundreds. The most active trading activity there. One spent $60,000+.
Overall collector and dealer activity was very good as well. The crown looks oddly worn or oxidized. It is actually solid gold. Typical of a fine case the flat inner cover is a distortion free optically flat mirror
