Here’s another of the new arrivals, a very pretty Waltham Crescent St 18s in a plain high stem case. I was looking for one from 1914-18 hard to find, but when I saw this one, it was love 😮
This one is from 1907 and has a dedication to the former owner dating it to 1908, so everything is original to the parts, I would say.
The dial has the raised painted numerals which I’ve tried to capture on the pic, it really gives the face a standout look.
it’s 21 ruby jewels, adjusted to 5 pos, gold settings/train, and a broken staff, so far…
I know this one is going to be my carry watch when it’s up, if I have a staff 😆
Hope you enjoy it..

Nice Watch and great photos as usually Chris!
I’m still mesmerized every time I see a beautiful movement like this.

Nice watch Chris. Didn’t set you back to much did it? Looks like a good project. Nice find.March 6, 2014 at 4:21 am #56185
Bob this is my problem, the mezmerization factor, which usually feeds the collecting addiction 🙄
Good news is, I found some staffs that fit this range of walthams i.e veritas, 845, crescent St, it’s nice that Waltham made parts interchangeable with this line..
