Waltham Pocket Watch 1908

Not a great example of a Waltham but it’s one of the first watches in my collection given to me by my dad.

I like pocket watches and even this very ordinary 1908 example has a bi metalic balance with timing screws and a breguette hairspring but, dissapointingly, only 7 jewels.  The case is gold filled, in pretty good condition and I think, the only hunter case that I have

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
