The Waltham Watch Company, also known as the American Waltham Watch Co. and the American Watch Co., produced about 40 million watches, clocks, speedometers, compasses, time fuses, and other precision instruments between 1850 and 1957.
Before the Waltham Watch Company went out of business in 1957, it founded a subsidiary in Switzerland in 1954, Waltham International S.A.. Waltham International SA retains the right to the Waltham trade name outside of North America, and continues to produce mechanical wrist watches and mechanical pocket watches under the "Waltham" brand.
This watch is one of those Swiss timepieces made under the Waltham name circa 1965. It is a very nice 17 jewel, square watch in a yellow gold-filled case with a stainless steel back for wearing longevity. The case measures 25mm in width (without the crown), by 38mm lug-to-lug, by 11mm thick. Although this is a gentleman's watch it would look great on a ladies wrist as well. The "Incabloc" designation that you can see just below the center of the dial refers to a type of "Kif" spring that gave the watch a certain amount of shock resistant ability. The seconds bit displays the "gun-site" demarcations that was popular in this era. The hands are Dauphine Style and they set the tone for a really nice watch with great style.
