Desirable 18sz Waltham Dennison, Howard & Davis Coin Silver Hunters Case Watch

It is a seven (7) jewel key wind, key set movement. The movement serial number 4013, dates production to May 1857, using Waltham’s handwritten records (see picture). These 7 jewel movements rarely come up for sale because they were just a fraction of total production. It was fully serviced about a year ago and had a new mainspring installed at that time. It runs well and keeps good time. This piece starts with a quadruple hinged Boston Watch Co. Coin silver hunter case which is stamped B. 2490 and bears the Eagle Silver Hallmark. An uninitialed shield centers the front cover. The case is in good condition and appears to be original to the dial and movement. The front cover opens sharply when released and stops at 90 degrees as it should. The back cover opens to just past 90 degrees. There is a slight amount of play in the back covers as is typically expected with a case of this age. The front cover, cuvette and bezel hinges are all tight. The covers snap shut tight leaving no play or gaps. The bow has remained tight. The case shows normal, even pocket wear from use and polishing but there are not deep dents or scratches present. The watch measures 55mm (2 1/8″) wide X 79mm (3 1/16″) from the top of the bow to the base of the case X 19mm (3/4) thick. Overall, the case has aged nicely. The white porcelain unsunk dial is in excellent condition showing no hairlines or edge chips. The blued spade pointers and bright and crisp. The glass crystal is scratch free. The 18sz, 7 jewel, Model 1857, gilt, full plate key wind and key set movement is super bright and crisp. It is signed “Waltham – Dennison Howard & Davis”. The serial number of 4013 dates production of this piece back to May 1857 (see accompanying photo of Waltham’s hand written records above). The movement shows only minor service marks and has a very attractive luster. It has been serviced within the past year and had a new mainspring installed. It winds and sets fine and is running strongly and keeping excellent time. A key will be included with the watch. These DHD timepieces are among the earliest produced by Waltham. They are very desirable and sought after, especially an original example such as this. I will also gladly consider any offer you may wish to make. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

For Sale: one 18 size American Waltham 15 jewel Dennison, Howard, & Davis grade pocket watch with it’s original sterling silver case. This watch is in excellent condition for it’s age; it was made in 1856, and was professionally serviced about a month ago, which included a new alloy mainspring and regulating for timekeeping. The movement serial number is 4,092; the twelfth picture is of the dial side of the movement. It is in a B. Case, which has a serial number of 4185; the case is in remarkably good condition for it’s age; the spring that holds the front cover closed is nice and strong, but the spring that opens the cover has weakened some with age. It still opens without any trouble. The eagle mark can be seen in the sixth picture.
