    Please help :)

    Hello everyone.

    I was offered this 1897 model Waltham for pretty small money.

    I seen that some of these particular models can sell for anything from 150 - 200USD roughly.

    But this particular watch is pretty distinct from the others I came across.

    Its a pretty nice piece all in all.

    All though I have not had the chance to see the hallmarks up close to identify the cases origin.

    I would still say its solid silver.

    What baffles me with watch is that the dial is not signed, is this common???

    And is this kind of dial common also?

    I have seen a few similar dials here and there whilst browsing the web, but unfortunately don't have a clue what they are called so I have no grounds to conduct my search from.

    Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Rob

    (My apologies, turns out it is a 1890 model with serial number: 8101205

    7 jewel.


    Size 6.


    But I am still distraught about that dial! :/


    Doesn't look very Waltham like to me, not to mention that I have been searching the net for the past 5 hours straight and can't come up with anything in regards to the dial).

    Those look like Swiss hallmarks to me, which goes with caseback and dial.
