WE CONSISTENTLY SELL THE LOWEST PRICED GENUINE ROLEX WATCHES ON THE WEB. ALL PICTURES ARE OF THE ACTUAL WATCH FOR SALE. Guaranteed to be as described and satisfaction guaranteed, this is a very nice Waltham 1891 model Seaside grade size 0 (small) pocket watch made c. 1902 which has been recased in a wrist watch case probably in the 1920’s. Men made the switch from pocket watches to wrist watches after WWI because they found it to be problematic to be fumbling around in their pockets to check the time with gloves on, in a trench and taking fire. Many pocket watches were converted to wrist watches in the trenches by simply soldering wire lugs on to attach them to the wrist with a strap. Once the war was over watch case makers started making formal cases to recase existing watches. This beautiful watch comes in lightly and infrequently worn condition considering it is over a century old. It has just had a full mechanical servicing and runs as well as it did when new. Before WWII the USA made the best and most beautiful watches in the world. This watch calls back to that time and reminds you of that every time you check your wrist for the time. This watch is BEAUTIFUL. This watch will come with our sales receipt with model number and authenticity noted. It will also come our Certificate of Authenticity (COA). Last week the manual windup movement was fully serviced, it is running as well as it did when new. The watch has only been worn off and on in it’s 100+ years. It shows light wear but no damage. The case measures about 32.5mm wide excluding the crown (it’s an average sized mens watch for the time period, not over sized like modern watches, current standards would be to call it mid sized or small mens/large ladies). The winding crown is the original chunky sized crown with some wear through to the gold plating. The case back shows no improper tool marks, or damage. The band is a quality genuine leather strap which will fit up to an 8 inch wrist. The original enamel dial is very nice and “minty” for a 120 year old. It only shows a couple very minor hairlines. The crystal has a few scratches, but we elected to not change it since it is a nice beveled glass bezel which could be 100 years old. The pictures have been taken from every angle and represent the watch well, in fact they are 3x magnified, the dial is beautiful, and the watch is polished to a perfect shine. Any imperfections you see in the shine are just reflections the camera caught. This is a beautiful example of this model. We are a NAWCC member and offer a 30 day return privilege.
