The only information i have been able to gather if i am correct this watch was manufactured in 1892 the serial number reads "5885874" on the mechanical backside of this watch there is another number 270781 located on the openings of the watch. The watch is in perfect working condition i am looking on what something like this might be worth.

    Here's an example of one that sold recently on the bay: Waltham 1891 Gold Filled Hunter Case Pocket Watch- Size 0 - 7 Jewel- WORKING-NR | eBay

    Yours isn't quite as nice, but it's very close. This one went for more, but is in a solid gold case: Super 14K gold O size Waltham Watch Co hunter pocket watch -Ca 1891 $375 | eBay

    And this one is probably closest to yours, but it didn't sell at the price listed: ANTIQUE EARLY 1894 AMERICAN WALTHAM WATCH CO. POCKETWATCH Model 1891 HUNTER CASE | eBay
