INTRODUCTION Available now is this amazingly beautiful antique miniature or small Waltham pocket watch, crafted from solid gold with good provenance. The condition is stunning and all original. This is a beautiful hand crafted solid 14K gold antique American Full Hunter pocket watch. The stunning case was hand crafted from solid 14K yellow gold, then hand engraved. Fully signed and hallmarked inside of both front and back covers:'KEYSTONE','14K' (gold purity),'C' and'5046648' (serial number).
Indicated on the bridge of the movement. There is also a seconds hand at the 6-o-clock position.
The orginal hands were made using the traditional blued steel watch making technique. I find it very interesting that this pocket watch is engraved'1912', yet the engraved case have Art Deco and Art Nouveau elements. The design appears to be the precursor to the Art Deco design period. The Art Deco period begun around 1925.
The engraved design on the front and back gold covers are very geometric and Art Deco in design. Also the engraved graceful cuving floral elements are clearly from the Art Nouveau period.Therefore, I conclude that the engravings are historical in the sense that it represents the transitional period from the Art Nouveau to the Art Deco period. PROVENANCE Engraved'1912' on the inner front cover. This was the year this beautiful Waltham pocket watch was given by'J to E'. This rare timepiece was in the personal collection of a top local retired antique dealer. I can disclose his information to the next new lucky owner.
MEASUREMENTS The case measures only 1 11/32" in length and 10/32" in thickness. About the size of an olive oil cap.
CONDITION The condition is excellent original antique condition. The dial is free of any cracks.The case retains its original finish and has not been repolished before. You can tell by how crisp and sharp the engraving and components are. This pocket watch winds and operates, but I offer no guarantee of its continued function.
A service would be up to the new owner. There are service records engraved on the inside of the movement cover.
