i was at a store that specialized in turquoise and vintage silver jewelry with my wife today. while she was looking at rings, i looked over the silver and turquoise watch cuffs. nothing too interesting and all of them had some kind of generic quartz watch attached... except one that had a dirty, older gold Waltham attached. i particularly like the very thin seconds hand with a red arrow tip. i asked the owner if the watch worked, and he let me wind it up. it came right to life, but when i gave it back he asked if i wanted just the watch. i did not really want try to buy it, i had not come looking for a watch, but he said he would just give it to me, so i said "sure"
i brought it home and it polished up nicely. it does have a crack in the crystal but is usable. it was about +5 s/d face up and about 220 degrees amplitude. however; it did not fare so well in other positions.
i put it on a brown perlon strap and think it looks pretty nice. what do you think?
does anyone have any information on this model and maybe an idea of its age? i was thinking it was maybe from the 50's or 60's... does that seem right?
