Here is another 50-year award. The watch is a Waltham Maximus in a 14K gold case. It is their relatively new Colonial-A model which was the thinnest American watch at the time. It would have sold for around $250 in 1917 when it was presented.

Jerry, particularly like the Waltham pocket watch inscription; I was a "paper boy" for the Detroit Free Press in approximately 1963-64. I didn't get a watch when I "retired" from that gig.
