American Waltham was the first company to produce a watch entirely by machine, tracing its roots back to 1850 with three Massachusetts businessmen in pursuit of the concept of interchangeable parts. Their most popular 16-size models were the 1899 and the 1908, which were near-mimics of each other. The factory produced some 350,000 of the workhorse Grade 620, but a very small percentage of those were made in two-tone with flashed-gilt plates and a nickel balance cock to offset the winding wheels - in fact, the Waltham Gray Book doesn't break out these small blocks within runs. Yes, all serial numbers match and all fifteen jewels are still intact on this special piece, which was just thoroughly restored for the next owner. The single-sunk Arabic dial is almost flawless behind blued moon hands, but the best part is the unusual two-tone case, which was made by the Philadelphia Case Co. It has a gold-filled frame and pendant with twin nickel covers, matching serial numbers, a correct bow, a very sharp crown, and an NOS beveled glass crystal. Matching lanyard and display stand included.
