Antique American Waltham Gold Filled GF Pocket Watch

~Please scroll down past the description for the full display of pictures~


 

I’ll begin by stating we are not experts on pocket watches so all the information contained here is from research. Please view the pictures as they form a major part of the description.

 

This is the most Stunning Antique Pocket Watch I have had the pleasure to hold and to think it dates to 1894, making it 116 years old, is just amazing! The pictures do not do it justice at all. It is in excellent working order and has been fully serviced by a Specialist and comes with the remainder of the warranty for that service.

 

The actual watch is superbly decorated with gold enamel and green “jewelled” accents at each hour. Fancy filigree hands for all three hands, including the second hand, are superb.

 

The case is a Hunter Case with each cover tooled with a different design – the front cover has a monogram PH . The gold’s hue is a soft yellow with a hint of Rose.

OVERALL

Better-than-Excellent Antique condition! There are some subtle, insignificant signs of use that are minimal. There are no dents, no damage, minimal wear to the interior and no repairs evident. There is a slight craze line to the face. There is absolutely nothing that detracts from this lovely old RARE piece and it would make addition to a collection of Victorian antique pocket watches.

 

VALUE POINT:   Original condition in Working Order – newly serviced
