Hunting pocket watches are clever mechanical puzzles that open with a spring-loaded button, allowing the front lid that protects the crystal and the dial to rise on another spring, and a pair of hinged covers guard the movement from the rear. They're elegant timepieces from generations ago, meant for gentlemen of leisure. Make sure to wear this vintage watch with a chain and a special fob.

American Waltham kept their model numbers simple, naming them for the year in which they debuted, so their 16-size Model '99 was launched in the year 1899. It was the ideal platform for many of the factory's grades, since it was durable, efficiently simple, and easy to service. This 7-jewel pendant-set example dates to around 1904 and is in exceptional condition with all of its hardware matching and correct, right down to the snowy white Arabic dial and matching blued light spade hands. As good cases become ever more difficult to find, this fantastic sterling silver hunter is reason alone to own this pocket watch, with deep and sharp engraving, covers that don't overextend, tight hinges, a French bow, and sharp crown, and a new glass crystal. It was just thoroughly cleaned and restored for the next owner, so don't miss out on this example from the turn of the 19th century.
