Description
(All text, heading, information and photographs within this listing are the intellectual property and copyright of; riversidemaximus23.) Vintage Gentleman's original 'Waltham', high grade Swiss 17 jewel pocket watch with beautiful ivory dial in a highly ornate 12 carat (tested) gold plated half hunter case. C ~1970's. Looks to have been much loved and very well cared for - her condition certainly reflects this. Full working order and is an excellent timekeeper (within +2/-2 minute per 24 hours) with plenty of room on the regulator (which is sat correctly in the central position) for any further fine tuning. Fully checked and serviced by my highly experienced watchmaker and is guaranteed to be 100% authentic - a timepiece to grace any Collection! Dial;- Impressive and distinctive, high gloss, 'snowflake' white dial in mint condition - absolutely no hairlines, marks or nibbles. Signed clearly in bold, black very fancy script; Waltham 17 Jewels With; Swiss Made in arched black script below the sub dial. Bold black heavily scrolled Arabic numbers (note the lovely little arrow tip to number 4) with black minute markers and red Arabic numbers (13 - 24) forming the chapter ring. Large sub dial with black Arabic numbers and black seconds chapters. Finely cut, original black steel double spade and whip hands (so allowing for easy time check through the front cover) and original black steel arrow tip seconds hand all in lovely straight, unmarked order. Original hunter crystal in clear, bright condition and slightly domed outer crystal in amazing order with just one or 2 tiny (micro) surface scratches showing under eyeglass Only. Case;- The highly ornate (4.4cm diameter / 6.3cm from top of bow to base), 12 carat (tested) gold plated case is heavy (has a pleasing solid feel in the hand and total watch weight is 66.5 grams), robust and in outstanding condition - absolutely no wear or indentations and few very light and fine little (micro) overall surface scratches commensurate with age and use in her 50 years service. All covers (both inside and out) still retain their original, high gloss, mirror finish. Beautifully decorated to the front cover with elaborate scrollwork, leaves and flowers set upon an engine turned background - the detail of which is as crisp and clear today and the day it was made. The large black Roman numerals around the inner chapter ring are in excellent condition with no chips or damage. The back cover is crisply engine turned with a fancy shield shaped, un-engraved cartouche to centre. The front cover opens correctly to exactly 90 degrees when the winder is depressed, closing tightly with a very reassuring click (always depress the winder when closing to save wear to the gold and also the catch) and the large hinge is true and firm with absolutely no play. The back cover snaps on and off correctly closing tightly with a very reassuring click. Both front and back covers are adorned inside with bright 'fish scale' engine turning. The inside of the back cover is clearly stamped; Waltham Swiss Base Metal. Movement;- The stem wound and set, Swiss 17 ruby jewelled, 3/4 fire gilt plate (they are more commonly steel) engine turned lever movement is in superb bright and clean order and has just been fully checked and serviced. Clearly stamped on the top plates; Waltham Swiss Seventeen 17 Jewels Unadjusted. Numbered on the bottom plate (to the side of the balance assembly with the calibre; 6498 and stamped Ut (Unitas) Ms. Balance action is absolutely tremendous in all positions (could not be any better) and is keeping excellent time with a sure, strong positive action. Winds extremely smoothly and fully (do not be afraid to fully wind, over-winding is the greatest horological myth!) Hand set operates smoothly and correctly - the pull up/push down action is very firm and true. Lovely large un-worn gold plated 'onion' crown. Good original firm totally un-worn gold plated Bow. Appraisal;- A very handsome and highly impressive Gentleman's Vintage Waltham half hunter timepiece which as mentioned above was much loved and very well cared for by the original owner - she will make a perfect gift and a heirloom to be enjoyed by your future generations! Ready to wear or display. Will be delivered in a new presentation box as shown and be very securely and safely packed.
