This is a beautiful example of one of the premium American Waltham Watch Co's. Railroad grade pocket watches. It features the 21 jewel, model 1892 movement with the diamond end stones.
Movement: The 21 ruby jewel, lever setting, 18 size movement has beautiful damaskeening with gold accents including the gold "smoke stack" style jewel settings, gold balance screws, and diamond end-stones. The movement is marked Vanguard, Waltham Mass., 21 Ruby Jewels, Safety Barrel, and Adjusted. There are some oxidation spots on the Ratchet and Crown Wheels - nothing that affects how the watch runs. The movement runs with strong motion and keeps very good time. The serial number on the movement is 9006425 dating it to 1899.
Case: The case is an exceptionally nice 20 year yellow gold filled model made by the N.A.W. Co. which, I believe is the North American Watch Co. The back cover is ornately engraved with the image of a horse's head. There are no significant dents or scratches and no initials or dedications. The gold fill is very good with just a small amount of wear through (brassing) around the edges of the back cover and front bezel and a couple of small spots on the stem - nothing ugly.
Dial: The dial is a double sunk porcelain type with fancy Arabic numbers surrounded by red color five minute markers. It has great eye appeal with the only imperfections being a hairline below the seconds bit - very minor.
Hands and Crystal: The dial is complimented with Moon style hands and a beveled glass crystal. Both the hands and crystals are in very good condition.
The watch measures 55 mm in diameter not counting the stem and bow.
