Waltham Riverside Maximus
This was “Top Of The Line” for Waltham. This C-1904 12 size pocketwatch has a very distinctive 14K filled gold case. The case was made by Wadsworth, one of the best watch case manufacturers at the time. The double sunk porcelain dial is a private label and is signed “A. Frankfield & Co., New York”. The Riverside Maximus movement features all the best technology at the time. There is a gold gear train, gold bezel-set jewels, Star micrometer regulator plus the movement features 21 jewels and is marked “Adjusted”. It is a stem wind and set.
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.
