Waltham 12-Size Engine Turned Hunter Item #13212 Price $350
Here we have a C-1899 Waltham hunter style pocketwatch in wonderful condition. The gold-filled Philadelphia Watch Case Co. hunter case is a 12-size and features some outstanding details throughout. Both the front and back of the case have an engine turned finish. The monogram crest on the front has never been engraved. At 119 years old, the case looks like it's seen very little use.
The signed porcelain dial looks excellent, as do the matching blued steel hands. The watch is powered by an American made Waltham signed movement with beautiful damasked finishing to the plates.
This one would make a great carrying piece!
The photos below are of the watch in its current, unrestored state.
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.
