Waltham 57 or not ??

#1 Post by LordMot » Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:12 pm

Hi, very new to the site and relatively new to pocket watches. Picket up this watch for $10.50. I bought it because it may be a 100 years older than me.
It looks like a Waltham 57, but could use some help.
Serial 90309.
Thanks for any info.

Welcome to the Forum!

I'm not a Waltham specialist, but this does look like a Model 1857.

You might want to post this also on the Pocket Watch forum. JerryT, who is active on that forum, knows a lot about Waltham.

Thanks for the reply and suggestion. If it is a Waltham, serial number indicates there was a run of 10 watches. There is an interesting piece between the plates (pictured) that I haven't seen on any other watch.
