    Yes we can help you with this one. 6S 15 jewel Model 1890 Hunter case Waltham made in 1893.
    This would have been a very nice ladies watch back then. Too small for men who were carrying big honking 18S watches in the gaslight era.
    The finishing is pretty fine - looks like a two tone movement.
    These don't bring a lot of money when they are sold - not as much interest in the smaller women's models. As with most watches eBay is probably your best bet.
    It would make a very nice gift to a special lady in your life. Could be worn as a pendant watch or get a fancy lady's fob for it.

    Serial number 6014940...

    Made in 1892, Model 1890, 6S, 15J, adjusted...that's all the online databases are telling me.

    Hi -

    At first I thought the damascening was post-market, but I see that it isn't. Not a true two-tone finishing, as the only gold color is in the lettering, rather than integrated into the design.

    Still, the watch is in remarkable shape. You can almost feel the machining marks on the damascening. Extremely fine shape.

    Congrats on that. We don't do valuations here and you will find that the market for such watches is fairly limited, as fine as they are.

    A shame, really!
