Two 36mm Sterling Silver Waltham Trench Watches w/ Coin Edge

#1 Post by Literustyfan » Wed May 23, 2012 5:48 am

Hey guys!

I recently got my hands on not one but TWO of these rather LARGE 36mm Sterling Silver Waltham Trench Watches ! ! !

These are size 0s SEMI-HERMETIC cases that were made by the Dennison Watch Case Company.

The inside of the case backs are both hallmarked for the Birmingham Assay Office with the letter date code "q" for 1915.

Both have a coin edge bezel and case back with the deep well bezels.

The cases are VERY bold and robust weighing in at 20 grams of sterling silver each ! ! ! !

Your normal run of the mill size 0s sterling silver case only weighs about 9-11 grams on average.

Finding them in this LARGE 36mm case design is quite difficult, you only see maybe 2-3 of them a year.

That's why I was really surprised that I scored two in only two weeks ! ! ! ! !

Each one has a different military dial design with the correct hands for each dial.

I went with a traditional black leather strap for both of them that has keepers on both sides of the lugs, VERY NICE ! ! !

Just to give these watches some scale here is the size 0s 36mm Waltham next to a GIANT size 6s 38mm Elgin.
