Waltham Royal 17-Jewel, C-1892 Item #13201 Price $425
C-1892! This American Made Waltham pocketwatch is in wonderfully preserved condition. The watch features a very high grade Waltham Royal movement with 17 jewels (marked "Adjusted"), a "tadpole" regulator, and beautiful damasked plates.
The watch is housed in a coin silver Crescent case with an engine turned caseback. At the center is a scrolling monogram crest that was never engraved.
The white porcelain dial features Arabic hour markers with contrasting red 5-second intervals around the border. Original fancy blued steel hands top it all off.
The photos below are of the watch in its current, unrestored state. No polishing or refinishing has been done.
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. Case cleaning and refinishing are also included. The extent of case refinishing, if any will be left up to the new owner.
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.
