    1915 A.W.W. Co. Waltham Pocket Watch Movement ID

    Attached pics are of a 1915 A.W.W. Waltham pocket watch. It's pretty tiny, only 1 1/4" in diameter. Two questions -- what movement is this, I don't see any identifiers (movement name, jewels, etc.); what is the significance of the red numbers? is it missing a second hand? are they just for tracking minutes? Any help appreciated.

    I'm no Waltham expert, I'm afraid, but to me it looks like a Cal. 1900 or an even smaller version of that movement in the savonette version:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Waltham 1900 Lepine

    That movement was only 28mm which fits in with your size indication for the overall watch (1.25'' is about 32mm). Your version is obviously the 7 jewel and simple adjustor grade (100, 110 or 310). The Cal. 1900 did have a subseconds but it would evidently have been dropped from this particular piece. It's always easier to leave something out than put in what isn't there from the start.
