The photos for this watch were taken by a high megapixel digital camera and show detail far beyond what you could see with the naked eye. The details are such as you would see by using a magnifying glass. The American Waltham Watch Company had its beginnings in 1850 in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The company was founded by David Davis, Aaron Dennison, and Edward Howard. Their vision was to form a watch company that could produce high-quality watches at a lower cost using interchangeable parts. With financial backing from Samuel Curtis, of small-arms manufacturing fame, the watch production began in 1851, and the first small group of watches were finished in late 1852. The first watches produced went to officials of the company, and it was not until 1853 that the first watches were offered for sale to the public. Problems were encountered with the new production methods. The company was exploring innovative new ideas in watch manufacturing, such as using jewels, making enamel dials, and producing plates with a high-level of finish which required extensive tooling and resulted in a great financial burden. They also found that even though they were using interchangeable parts, each watch was still unique and had its own set of errors to be corrected. It took months to adjust the watches to the point where they were any better than other widely available timepieces. In 1853, the factory building was completed and the company began doing business under the name American Horologe Company. ” The name was changed to “Boston Watch Company in September 1853, and the factory in Waltham, Massachusetts was built in October 1854. The movements produced here (serial numbers 1001 – 5000) were signed “Dennison, Howard, & Davis, ” C. The company went through a series of financial reorganizations and renamings over the next decades. It was reorganized as Tracy, Baker & Co. ” and later that same year the name was again changed to “Appleton, Tracy & Co and watches 5001 – 14,000 were produced. The first movements carried the Appleton, Tracy & Co. Waltham During the Civil War Years. In January, 1859 the Waltham Improvement Co. And the Appleton, Tracy & Co. Merged to form the American Watch Company. In 1860, as Abraham Lincoln was elected President and the country found itself in the throes of the Civil War, the American Watch Company was faced with serious financial problems. By 1861, business had come to a standstill and bankruptcy seemed inevitable. The factory was kept in operation through these years by cutting expenses to the lowest possible level… A strategy that proved successful. According to the biography by Carl Sandburg, Abraham Lincoln owned and carried a Waltham Wm. The watch was an 11-jewel, 18 size, key-wind in a silver hunter case, and was produced in January of 1863. In 1885, the company became the “American Waltham Watch Company”. In 1906 the company was renamed the “Waltham Watch Company”. In 1923, they became the “Waltham Watch and Clock Company” reflecting the new importance of clock manufacturing, but then in 1925 the name was changed back to “Waltham Watch Company”. American Horology owes much to the brilliant visionaries of the Waltham Watch Company. Bacon, Church, Dennison, Fogg, Howard, Marsh, Webster, and Woerd all contributed greatly to American watchmaking. Waltham continued to manufacture watches (and clocks) until 1957, when they ceased production and became the Waltham Precision Instrument Company. Several of the original Waltham factory buildings are still standing, and were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. In addition to using grade numbers, Waltham also used many grade names on their watches, often choosing the names of Board members, company investors, or other prominent individuals. The grade name basically designates the model and/or level of finish of the watch. Some of the more popular Waltham named grades were. Bartlett, Appleton Tracy & Co. William Ellery, Crescent Street, Colonial, Riverside, Central Park, Broadway, Royal E. Robbins, Vanguard, Bond Street, Sterling, Premier, Royal, and Maximus. This is an antique U. Made Waltham pocket watch made in 1892. It has an 11 jeweled movement with three of the jewels being the “scew set” types, visible on the main plate in gold settings. The engraved hunter case is in near mint condition. The watch is not running though it is complete and appears to have a good balance and probably just needs a good cleaning. It is a model 1890, 6 size, Coin Silver hunter case, pendant. Wind & set, the movement plates are finished with nickle damaskeening. The hand painted porcelain dial is in great condition with only one small chip on the outside of the number 9 and no cracks at all. It has black Roman Numerals. It has blued hands. Both hands are in pristine condition. (It is missing the seconds hand) It is signed: “American Waltham” at the upper center dial. There is a sub seconds dial. There is a minutes/seconds. Around the outer rim of the dial with the main positions in red Arabic numerals. The crystal is missing. This is an Waltham pocket watch movement, made in Waltham. It is an 11 jewel movement with three screw-set jewel settings in gold visible on the plate.. It was made in 1892. The movement is signed: AMERICAN WALTHAM WATCH Co. / 5744640 / SAFETY BARREL It is not running. It is a model 1890, 6 size, 3/4 plate, hunter case, pendant set & wind. The movement is finished with nickle damaskeening. Looks shiny & new. Near mint condition Coin Silver case. Beautifully engraved front & back with flowers & leaves. Matching case serial number 8411 is on the inside of all covers and the main body of the case. The front cover is in near perfect condition. The spring action that opens the cover and holds it open works perfect. The cover stays on and never pops open on it’s own. The snap on back, and also a hinged snap on dustcover are also both Coin Silver. The inside of the dustcover is signed: “COIN SILVER (and a crown logo)” The dustcover and back cover both close perfect. The case is 43 mm in diameter not including the bow and stem. Both outer surfaces of the two covers are near mint, and on the inside of the three covers you have very near perfect smooth surfaces with one or two light scratches that you can barely see. On the area of the back cover where you pry open the covers there is the usual rough area where a hundred knife blades and watch openers have opened the case, though on this watch which obviously did not see much use it is not too bad at all. The outer rim of the main body of the case also is engraved and in excellent condition. Please see the photos I took from all angles. There are more photos available if anyone wants to see them. Excellent condition, no wear. The crown is in excellent vintage condition with light visible wear and it functions perfect to wind & set the time. The push action to open the hunter case front cover works perfect. The bow is in excellent vintage condition with only feint wear. I don’t refinish or polish any watch that I have in my possession. I do make sure that the watch and all of it’s functions are working perfectly before I list a watch. I ONLY ACCEPT PAY-PAL.

FINE CIVIL WAR PERIOD RARE 8 SIDED COIN SILVER HUNTER CASE POCKET WATCH & CHAIN. PLEASE VISIT MY NEW WEST COAST TRADING POST STORE! IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF MY LISTINGS. SCARCE EARLY CIVIL WAR PERIOD MODEL 1857 POCKET WATCH. RARE 8 SIDED OCTAGONAL 5 OUNCE COIN SILVER HUNTER CASE. GOLD GILTED WALTHAM WATCH MOVEMENT KEY WIND & KEY SET. 7 – 11 JEWEL MOVEMENT RETAILED AND SIGNED BY P. This Civil War Period, key wind & key set, early watch movement is made by the Waltham Watch Co. 45 mm, 7-11 jewels, Model 1857, serial #163264, that dates to 1864. Note these early period watches have small variations over the time of manufacturing that only occurred within certain time frames that advanced watch dealers with extensive libraries use to pinpoint the year of manufacture, vs. Taking the serial number table as being accurate. The stem is solid and does not wind the watch; it just houses the release pin for the front hunter case cover. The watch is wound from the back side with the small key, and the time is set from the front using the same key on the center square pin that manually adjusts the hour and minute dials. This size 18 watch is heavy for it’s size and weighs 6.6 ounces or 188 grams. The 17 hallmarked sterling chain has 2 different sizes of links; 6 lengths of smaller flat links that are connected by larger sized links. The T bar is marked “STERLING SIL”, “A & BRo”, and weighs 1.4 ounces or 39 grams. Total weight is 8.0 ounces or 227 grams The round top of the patented original key swivels for easy winding, and is marked ” PATENTED ” on one side, and SEPT. This watch has 4 cover hinged plates 2 on the front & back. The outside silver front of the hallmarked Hunter case and the inside glass cover with a silver border; and the back side hallmarked silver cover plate of the watch case with an inside silver domed cover for the mechanism with a cross hatched border and hole for the watch key to wind the watch. The front cover is released by pressing down on the top knob to release the internal latch that secures the front cover tightly. When putting the front cover back into it’s closed position, press down on the top button first, close the front lid, the release the top button that secures the front lid without undue wear to the cover’s silver lip. The off white colored glass fired enamel dial is clean, and appears to be free of lines, cracks and chips with Roman numeral hour markers, an outside border with second increments, black hour and minute hands with small silver spots, and a small minute sub dial with a charcoal bright blue hand. The dial face is signed AMERICAN WATCH Co. This is a key wind, key set early watch movement. The 5 ounce coin silver case is heavy duty , with double box hinges on different flats of the bottom; one for the hunter case cover of the dial on the front of the case, and the other on the back side of the case to protect the movement. The inside glass cover for the dial is set in a round frame the lifts up to allow access to set the watch. This metal ring has a nail slot to the right of the stem that allows the glass cover and rim to open. The time is set from the front using the same wind key on the center square pin that manually adjusts the hour and minute dials. This back cover has a small lip adjacent to the stem to easily access the internal mechanism to wind it with the key attached to the chain. Once the back hinged cover is open, it reveals the hole in the inside cover plate that protects the movement, but allows access to the watch spring for winding the watch with the key. This inside back cover plate has a cross hatched outside border, but opens via a small recess to the plate adjacent to the stem that creates a nail slot to access the movement and adjust the F(ast) & S(low) lever that has a tiny panel attached with 2 screws that has hand engraved increments for adjustment. This movement has full gold plating and the early style flat post that secures the Master fly wheel pin, and is beautifully hand engraved in 3 different styles in 3 separate panels, with fine attention to detail. Both the inside of the hunter cast top hinged cover and the back side hinged cover have identical marking, and are stamped, “F M”, “WARRENTED”, “COIN SILVER”, and the number “4400″. The inside movement is hand engraved with the movement number 163264, and Waltham, Mass. Along with large Old English Script lettering, P. I have been told that the 7 minimum – 11 maximum jewels in this watch refer to the actual number that varies over time during the life of a watch manufacturing; and that can only be determined by removing the movement from the watch case to inspect. The front cover of the hunter case has hand engraved Victorian style basket of flowers design. This fine engraving on a soft silver cover still shows, but as expected, has wear from removing and replacing the watch in a vest pocket over a period of many years. Remarkably, the front cover has no dings or dents, just one minuscule pin prick and a light outline at the top where the attachment ring left a mark from storage. The back side has a couple of tiny dinks and a surface that reflects in the light from almost invisible, extremely light surface reflections. There are two tiny marks where the attachment ring made a shallow impression on the cover. Note it is very difficult to photograph a curved shiny object that reflects light and acts as a mirror.
