Talk about an affordable watch from a great American manufacturer for not much dough....this is it. The American Waltham Watch Company (later Waltham) of Waltham, Mass. was second largest only to Elgin. They didn't produce as many wristwatches as Elgin, but the ones that they produced are really nice. They held forth from 1851 until 1957. In 1946, they made this great looking, white gold-filled, rectangular beauty that has its original dial finish with alternating even Arabic numerals and square markers. There is a seconds bit, which mimics the case shape, at the 6 o'clock position and the blued steel hands are outstanding. The case, which measures 23mm wide, by 35mm lug to lug, by 7mm thick (including the crystal) houses a 17 jewel, caliber 750-B movement that is winding, setting, and keeping time just as it did back in 1946. We have selected a great looking, black, lizard grain band that completes the look perfectly. Make sure you notice the rilled sections between the lugs as these touches give it a very unusual appearance. This entire piece of wrist-art can be yours! Our one year warranty for parts and labor will assure you of years of great service from a very cool watch!
