Waltham Vanguard C-1915 Item #13090 SOLD
Over 100 Years Old!!! This 16-size pocketwatch features Waltham's top-of-the-line Vanguard Railroad Grade movement with 23 jewels, a gold center wheel, gold jewel settings and gold timing screws. This movement also features diamond end stones on the balance, as you'll see in the photo below. Very high grade. The NAWCO Security gold-filled case comes with a correct glass crystal in good condition. It shows a small amount of wear, mainly at the bow, but in great shape for a watch made over a century ago! The dial is double sunk and in outstanding condition with no chips or hairlines that we can spot, and features original matched blue steel hands.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order.
Once you've made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as "Sympathetic Restoration"; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don't want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
