Waltham was one of the greatest all time watchmakers. Starting in the mid 1800’s in th USA until going bankrupt in 1949, Waltham dominated the market especially with their pocket watches during the first 60 years or so. After 1949, Watham continued to be marketed but using quality Swiss Ebauche movements. Here is an example from the early 60’s.
This is a very nice dress watch with a fine gold plated case, simple fine hour markers, non luminous polished hands with sub second hand and a very impressive Eagle emblem.
The Peseux 330 movement is found in some of the best dress watches including Girard Peregaux.
During this period of time, dress watches told the time and little else. This watch is typical with no shock proof system and no seals for the case.
