Waltham Railroad Grade 845 Housed in Beautiful Star Watch Case Co. 10K Gold Filled Case

The Waltham Watch Company originally named the American Horological Company, ushered in a new era of watchmaking in 1850, becoming the first company in the United States to mass-produce pocket watches and other precision instruments. For more than a century the watchmaker produced some of the world’s finest pocket watches until 1958.

Today, Waltham’s products continue to carry the proud legacy of this once great American watchmaker. Timepieces such as this beautiful Waltham Grade 845 Model 1892, produced in 1906, are sought after by collectors for their historic, horological, and nostalgic value.

The Waltham Grade 845 was one of the highest-grade pocket watches ever produced. Waltham used the finest materials available combined with finishing and burnishing techniques to create this exquisite grade 845 movement. The size 18 movement is a marvel to behold, with 21 jewels, and a full plate with a nickel finish. It is housed in a Star Watch Case Co. 10K gold fill case with a silky smooth case back for an unparalleled tactile experience.

If you’re looking for a timepiece rich in historic and horological value, this watch is a must-have. The date of its production places it at a major turning point in world history; in all the world’s big events since that time, this watch was there, in existence, wound by the hands of those who witnessed these events and perhaps even participated in them. For 115 years, it has been in the hands of caring owners whose pride in owning this timepiece shows by its survival in such wonderful conditions for such a long span of time.
