    Vintage Waltham - thoughts?

    Hi Everyone,

    After two years of lurking in this forum, I finally decided to make an account. I love this website and I'm a fool for not joining in a little sooner.

    Anyways, I recently bought a vintage Waltham. I have done as much as I could to find info about this watch and I thought maybe I should post it to see what kind of information I get from you guys. ANY INFO/COMMENTS about the company or the watch itself would help.

    Hi John,

    Welcome at last. Glad you could join the madness. As you know from your years of lurking one of the most frequently asked question is "Can we have a look at the movement ". Nice looking watch . I don't know great deal about Walthams but I'm sure someone will be along soon.



    Regards,

    It's a fairly simple Swiss (or possibly french or german...can't make out the text) made watch imported by the successor to the Waltham Watch company in probably the late 60's. I can't tell if it should have a sweep second hand or not from the pic; dress watches sometimes used a non-sweep movement (since they were a lot thinner).

    Very interesting! This watch doesn't have the sweep second hand.
