Vintage American Waltham Watch Co. Seaside pocket watch. Ladies size 6 with a gold filled case measuring 42mm in diameter.
Made in USA
These days, you have two choices for American watches: buy into confusing marketing hype and phrases like “built in Detroit” or “designed in LA” or you can own a watch like this that was actually 100% made in USA.
Based on the serial number on the movement in this timepiece, we have determined that it was produced in circa 1899. That makes it 120 years old and still ticking!
The hunter style Monitor case has a decorative engraving on the front and back covers. On the inside of the back cover you will find the original paper tag that reads: 14K Gold Filled / This certifies that the accompanying case No. 315410 is made of a plate of solid 14K gold overlaying a plate of composition metal and is warranted to wear 20 years / National Jobbing Company.
