Lovely Antique Silver 7 Jewel. The case is a sterling silver open face. Chester hallmarks for 1876 and Alfred Bedford (Waltham) makers mark. It is in good condition. The hinges are firm and not stressed.The lids open and close correctly. The internal dust cover is missing, the hinge lugs and pin for the dust cover are in good condition still in the case. The bow is a good fit on the pendent. The front bezel has a raised crystal in good condition.
The watch is key wind and key set at the rear, working correctly. At size 14, it is a Gentlemans Dress Watch. The 7 jewel movement is signed for the American Watch Co. The serial number 887107 lists it as the model 1870-14, size 14, grade Crescent Garden, 7 jewels and was built in 1877. The watch is winding smoothly, setting correctly and is running well.
It is in a nice clean condition but service history is not mentioned on its label, been in collection a long time. The key is with it. The white enamel double sunk dial is in a very good cosmetic condition.
The hands are whip and spade gold gilt with Roman numerals. I have seen and owned quite a lot of'Crescent Street' Walthams but this is the only'Crescent Garden' I have ever seen, there were only 18,987 ever made making it quite a rare example. Please remember this is circa 147 years old, a quality antique working timepiece. My listings are for antique, vintage or old items, a.Ll will have some signs of age, use or wear. On't expect quartz timekeeping from a mechanical antique watch.
