I have an American Waltham Pocket Watch and would like to know more about it.
The watch is in an 18K gold (solid I believe) hunting case, with designs on both sides.
The serial number on the movement is 1,091,445 which dates it at 1877 as far as I can tell.
I’m not sure how many jewels are used in the watch. The watch does work, but there are 2 areas of concern regarding the crystal and the big hand hand. The big hand appears to be slightly bent, and the crystal has a hairline crack in the center.
I have attached a few pictures of the watch.
I would appreciate ANY feedback on the piece, such as "is it rare?" "was it in fact made in 1877?" "how many jewels does it have?" "what is the size?"
I recieved it from my Grandfather's estate when he passed, and look forward to passing it along to my own children someday.
Thanks for your time!
