Folks we have a very special offering for your consideration this high grade 23 jewel American Waltham Pocket Watch. We have a 23 Jewel Vanguard in a very rare Hunter Case configuration. The high grade Vanguard is more common in an Open Face configuration and extremely rare in this Hunter Case configuration winding at the 3:00 position. The Vanguard Movement is housed in this fine Dauber Hunter Case that is a size 16 and measures 2 inches in diameter, the most popular size pocket watch manufactured. These fine Hunter Case Pocket Watches are getting harder to locate in this fine condition. Many of these gold or gold fill cases with their steel spring latches did not hold up over the last 100 plus years, this is an excellent example of a fine Dauber Triple Hinge Hunter Case. Hopefully the many pictures and extreme magnification help in the description of this truly fine Waltham Hunter Case Pocket Watch.

This rare Waltham 23 jewel lever set Vanguard Movement has beautiful Checker Board damasked nickel silver plates with classic gold lettering. Waltham manufactured many models of the Vanguard, one of the finest pocket watches in the Waltham line up of offerings. This Waltham Grade Vanguard is the top of the line, again a rare 23-jewel lever set Hunter Case Movement highlighted with raised gold jewel settings, a gold center wheel and train, gold balance wheel and weights with a high grade micro regulator. This antique Waltham Vanguard Pocket Watch is truly a rare find at 107 years old; we do have some discoloration on the mainspring barrel, which will not effect operation, the only issue with this movement. This is a beautiful, rare and collectable timepiece.

The Dauber Case Company was know for the finest of pocket watch cases and this is an excellent example. This Waltham Hunters Case Pocket Watch is again in excellent condition with all 3 covers functioning just as they should. We have the front cover that opens with a push down on the winding crown. Both the back cover and dust cover function properly and close with a tight seal. This classic case is again in excellent condition and does not show it’s age at 104 years. These Hunter Cases are again a very soft metal and after 104 years we are lucky to see these at all; the case springs that open and hold the case closed are made of steel and they can wear through the soft gold over the years, and this one has survived in excellent condition.

The dial on 23 jewel Vanguard is the classic Waltham Railroad Dial. The dial is referred to as a double sunk dial with a recessed center chapter for the Waltham logo, and then we have a raised outer chapter for the Waltham font Arabic numerals. Then we have a sunken sub-register for the second hand. This fine dial is made of many layers baked silica giving the dial deep, rich porcelain, glass finish. The dial does have minor crazing near the 1 position and the second hand bit. This Waltham configuration is rare and highly desired so we live with these few minor issues. This extra fine 23 jewel Waltham Hunter Case Vanguard shows beautifully.

This is another excellent example of the of the late 19th early 20th Century ingenuity that made the American Pocket Watch a world wide standard for accuracy and beauty in timekeeping.
