I'd like to add one or two Waltham wristwatches to my collection and need help choosing specific models.
I don't collect one style or brand of watch, but instead, try to gather timepieces that best represent a given watch manufacturer -- usually their most distinctive or most popular model, or a watch that reflects the height of that manufacturer's history or technical advancement. My Hamilton collection includes an Ardmore, a Thinmatic and a military issue watch. For Bulova, I have Accutrons.
I've looked at numerous Walthams and read a bit of their history, but I'm still unclear which eras and specific models would best fit my criteria. Waltham's cushion styles from the 20's are my favorites aesthetically and I also like the later tank styles. I'm open to anything.
I'd really appreciate suggestions on particular Walthams that would best fit into my collection!
P.S. I'm not committed to these but it's nice to have pix, so here's several I've admired:
