Silver 1886 Waltham Hillside high grade key wind pocket watch, not working now
This is a very original Silver Waltham "Hillside" Waltham "AB" factory cased gentleman's pocket watch which is not currently in working condition, obviously now needs a good clean up and service, it has come straight from an old estate and has not been examined in detail since its re-discovery, the case is Sterling Silver and marked with the Birmingham "m" date stamp for 1886 as well as the classic A. B makers stamp for the Waltham Watch company, the AB in the case hallmark stands for Alfred Bedford who was the UK manager of the Waltham Watch Company in the UK at this time, based in Holborn Circus in London, this registration hallmark was registered 6 years earlier in 1879.
The winding is solid and appears to be fully wound has not been assessed though the balance is swinging and seems ok. The movement and dial are both signed and the movement has the high grade Gilded finish with some nice hand set jeweling as well. Size: approx 4.9 cm across. Please look at the images closely as they represent an important part of the description, thanks.
