Waltham Hunting Case in 10K Gold Fill with the Desired Stag Engraving
Thanks to the Waltham, the Civil War introduced millions of Americans to their first watch. In 1908, Ford introduced the Model T based on principles Henry Ford learned at Waltham. In 1910, when this Waltham Model 1883 was born, America was still largely a rural country.
The hand-engraved stag on the 10k gold-fill hunting case appealed to well heeled buyers who held America’s natural bounty in high esteem. Immaculately preserved, surrounded by sumptuous decoration, it calls to us from another time.
The pocket watch is further distinguished by its stately Roman numerals – uncommon after 1900 with the advent of the railroad watch’s mandatory Arabic font. Manufacturer in the largest size (18), the Waltham is as strong and accurate as it is beautiful.
If you’re looking for an elegant pocket watch to display on a bookshelf or a dressing room table, this Waltham is ideal, both face forward and reversed.
All our treasured timepieces are completely disassembled, expertly cleaned and oiled using the finest quality watch oil and gear grease, and adjusted for accuracy. Full one year warranty.
