Just starting out collecting Waltham pocket watches and learning a tremendous amount already. One thing I have read is that the value of a watch and it's desirability is increased if the watch is in the original case. I also understand from reading that many (most?) customers purchased movement and case separately depending upon their needs and budget. Furthermore, movements appear to have been put in cases not made by the same maker as the movement. So...
My question is: how do you know if a movement is in it's ORIGINAL case? Thank you in advance!
P.S. I searched the forum for this question and could not find any mention of. If I overlooked it, I apologize! ~ DocOpera
