Masonic Waltham Grade P.S. Bartlett Housed in Gold Fill Case

Freemasonry describes itself as a “‘beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.” The hand-engraved back of this perfectly preserved and fully functional Waltham Model 1883 pocket watch features Mason’s famous square and compass design – reminding its owner to “square his actions” and “stay within the bounds of morality.”The P.S. Bartlett Model 1883 was named after Patten Sergeant Bartlett, the highly esteemed foreman of Waltham’s plate and screw department until 1864. This pristine example of the legendary American watchmaker’s art dates back to 1901 – when gentlemen wouldn’t think of leaving the house without an elegant and dependable pocket watch of this quality and stature.

Manufactured in the popular and substantial size 18, the Waltham 1883 features the trademark Waltham double sunk dial sporting the original heat-treated blued steel hands, nestling inside a Philadelphia Case Company gold fill case. This is a well-priced and handsome pocket watch that deserves pride of place in a discerning buyer’s collection – especially if the buyer has a connection to Freemasonry’s ongoing fellowship and good works. The Waltham 1883 is an heirloom quality pocket watch destined to impress and delight generations to come. Click on the link to purchase.
