Waltham Hunter 18s Pocketwatch features a 21 jewel Vanguard (model 1892) movement marked adjusted and features huge gold jewel settings with gold screws, gold regulator, and the best feature of all, diamond endstones at the balance. A rare find! The dial is a double sunk Waltham with Roman numerals and features red 5-minute markers as well as matching blue steel hands. Housed in a gold-filled case with bold decorative engraving on both sides and scalloped edge. Circa 1902 and at 119 years old there are some signs of its age, but a very impressive Waltham by any standard!
Photos 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. Case cleaning and refinishing are also included. The extent of case refinishing, if any will be left up to the new owner.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration and case refinishing.
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 period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
