Offered for sale is an antique American Waltham Watch Co. Model 1888 open-faced pocket watch, circa 1897-1899. This is a 16-size watch, and measures approximately 51mm (2″) diameter. This watch features a genuine Fahys Monarch 14K yellow gold filled screw back and bezel case, a 17-jewel adjusted Royal Grade stem-wind stem-set movement, and a single-sunk porcelain dial with Roman numerals and blue steel spade hands. The case is in excellent condition, showing signs of occasional pocket carry and no visible brassing. The inside caseback is also stamped “Fahys 14k Monarch,” however, this case is 14k gold filled because Monarch cases are layered with a very thick coating of yellow gold. The caseback is also engraved with a fancy engine turned design, stars, and a blank cartouche in the center. The dial is in excellent condition, showing no cracks or chips. The movement runs and keeps excellent time. Overall, a presentable watch that is ready to carry with pride. You can own this high grade, clean, beautiful American-made pocket watch, for $499.99/obo.
