The back cover has an engine turned crosshatch pattern with a centre circular cartouche that has what I assume id the original owners name engraved, which I think is. Inside the rear cover it is clearly stamped with. It also has two stamped images of an eagle that look like they may be one of the early Waltham Watch makers marks? So the case could be an American 18ct gold case made by Waltham, with an English movement?
I cant find any reference to F. S&C and the case serial number, 1337, matches the movement serial number.The movement winding pin cover has an engraved scrolled circular pattern over the entry point. The hands are move by opening the front cover and using a square watch key to turn the central spindle. The watch is in full working order and come with two period keys that have a plain brass top section with loop and a steel shaft, which is slightly pitted with age. One key is for the winder and the other to adjust the hands. The movement has its original dust cover, which once removed reveals a beautifully chiselled movement by.
I have been told the movement is a Fusee movement with a compensated balance. The front bevelled edge glass has a flat centre section and is in excellent condition with no scratches. The watch measures 1.8 (4.7cm) diameter and weighs a heavy 99g. Please see my pictures for the details of the condition, which complement this description. I can look at alternative carriers and try and obtain the best deal for you, depending which country it needs to be delivered to.
