Antique Waltham Hillside Pocket Watch, 1886
Secure Payments By
The watch has a stem-winding movement, Hillside grade, which is working nicely. The movement is fully signed and the serial number, 2,989,716, dates it back to 1886. The movement is protected by an inner dust cover which is engraved with the name of a previous owner, F G Dymond. The watch measures 47mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is silver and there are hallmarks inside the two case backs for Birmingham 1889, with a maker’s mark for Alfred Bedford, Manager of Waltham UK. The case is in good condition, just a little gentle unevenness to the hinged back but nothing too serious, especially considering the age of the watch. The watch glass is in good condition, it has the remains of the original lens label but you have to look quite carefully to see it. The signed dial has some old damage to the edge, above number 12, but this is covered when the bezel is closed. There is also a faint hairline crack running through the numbers from 7 round to 11, and a couple of others but they are shorter and very faint. The hands are lever set which means that to initially set the time, the front cover hinges open and the small lever by number 1 is pulled out. The hands can be adjusted in the usual fashion, and then the lever is pushed back in. The watch comes in a new presentation box. All of our watches are checked over before listing, and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
