This large man's size Waltham PS Bartlett 11 jewel pocket watch features a precision size 18 movement that is sparkling clean and bright, with very strong running key-wind and key-set. Push the crown to open the front lid of this classic pocket watch for an amazing view of the detailed white porcelain dial, while the fine gilt movement inside effortlessly keeps time. Adorned with fancy engraving and a total of 11 jewels, the movement in the old-time pocket watch is truly a spectacle to behold. Movement has been professionally serviced including oiling, and timing. Made in the United States of America around 1860. These pre-civil war Walthams are getting difficult to find, this one 156 years old and running and looking great. Comes with an old key for winding.
The classic face of this well-preserved vintage pocket watch features a stylish single-sunk white porcelain background with large starkly contrasting black Roman numerals to represent each hour. Turn the watch over and you can see the fancy engraved shield with no initials. The coin silver case has an original patina, showing a couple of dimples and light scratches. Although it is easy to buff out the blemishes and make this silver case look brand new, we have not done this as many collectors demand an original patina. Overall, this large man's watch has that turn-of-the-century classic appeal that collectors desire. See our other categories of pocket watches for men.
