Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch, housed this classic 18K Gold Hunter Case. This fine timepiece is a rare size 10 first introduced in July of 1865 and measuring 1¾ inch in diameter. This pocket watch was meticulously maintained and we have the original wooden Presentation Box. This size 10 is very rare in that most pocket watches manufactured at this time were a size 18 or 20 and are heavy and measured 2¼ plus inches in diameter. This would have been the Gentleman’s Dress Pocket Watch of the day and a symbol of status and prestige. Appleton Tracy & Co. was formed in 1857 and in 1859 they merged with the Waltham Improvement Co. forming the American Watch Co. In 1885 they reorganized into the American Waltham Watch Co. and production was very limited until after the Civil War ended on May 9th 1865. This model A.T. & Co. was first introduced just after the end of the Civil War in July 1865. We have a very early American Pocket Watch, truly a timepiece of both Horologic and American History.

This Appleton Tracy Grade 1865 Movement is housed in this truly stunning 18K Gold Case. This case is a size 10 and measures 1¾ inch in diameter the same as the later size 12; the earlier cases were a bit larger with attention applied to every detail. This would have been the Gentleman’s Dress Pocket Watch of the day and a symbol of status and prestige. This case is very ornate with the most desired Engine-Turned pattern. These fine Hunter Case Pocket Watches are getting very hard to locate in this pristine condition and with this rare movement we have a truly desired and collectable timepiece. The 14 or 18K Gold Hunter Cases are a very soft metal; the 18K cases are less common due to the soft nature of the metal. Many of the hinges and steel spring latches did not hold up over the last 100 plus years let alone the last 152 years, we have a true survivor. This is again an excellent example of the finest in Triple Hinge Hunter Cases crafted in 18K Gold, the highest gold content used in these cases. This is a truly fine heirloom timepiece that shows beautifully and is sure appreciated for many, many generations to come.

The Key Wind Key Set Movement is in pristine condition without reckless jewelers tool marks or corrosion, truly a wonderful find. The total production of this model A.T. & Co. was 8,861 over 10 years from 1865 through 1875. This timepiece is offered for sale with its original wooden Presentation Box, a rare find indeed. This fine A.T. & Co. Pocket Watch has again been meticulously maintained over the last 152 years and as designed is an accurate timekeeper to this day.

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