Back inside of Hunter Case Marked with Patented C.W.C. Co (Crescent Watch Case Co), PLANET (guaranteed to be made of two plates of Solid Gold), Crescent Moon, and Star (meaning that it is gold filled 10KT, guaranteed for 20 Years)
Dust cover engraved M.A.C Dec. 24. 98…I assume this was given as a chrsitmas present. Underside of Dustcover CRESCENT WARRANTED 20 YEARS
Serial Number 842284, meaning the watch was made around 1875 to 1876.
Interesting note is on the inside rim of the case, it has the words “PAT D .DEC 7.8”, does this mean that the watch was patented and made in 1878?
Movement is Maker Marked American Waltham Watch Co. Safety Barrel. Watch Movement Number or Serial Number is 8337380. If it is the serial number, that would make this watch made around 1898. Which Coincides with the engraving.
This is a Lever Action Escapement Movement Correct?
