Customer Question
Seeking info on Waltham...

Seeking info on Waltham pocket watch my wife gave me as anniversary gift

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

/Seeking price on antique waltham pocket watch

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Size 18 case is in mint shape and is marked as 18k gold, 21 jewel, hunter case, adjusted, runs excellent and keeps time to about 1 minute/day
