    A very nice ladies Waltham

    Here is another one I just picked up. I have dated the movements to 1908ish. The watch itself was given to the woman as an Easter present in 1913. Her name is engraved with the date inside the back cover. This is one of the most remarkable pieces I have come across, it's in near mint condition. As I understand it, she only wore it on Easters, so a very few times through the years.

    Over many years I have bought these types as investments mainly solid and mostly multicolor gold. Glad I did even though still undervalued. Commonly the 1 1/2 inch 6 size is not used much. Too heavy on a neck chain. O size 1.17 inch much lighter and got more use. Add: Not merely investments, also fine technical art, craftsmanship, impressive jewelry, useful timepieces.

    Beautiful, and as Artb says, undervalued.

    This is a one inch movement, maybe a hair under. I am not familiar with sizes.

    Probably the best grade waltham in 6/0 size used in early wristwatches. A nice light load on a necklace.
