I believe it's pre-1900 based on the balance wheel location. You'll have to wait for someone with more knowledge about pocket watches.

I suggest that you post a cross-link to the Pocket Watch forum in case someone who reads there isn't reading the Waltham forum.

I'm not a Waltham specialist, but I gather that CP watches are a topic of considerable interest. There was a thread on another forum some years ago on the subject, including a discussion of how to distinguish a real CP watch from a fake. http://ihc185.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/t ... 3701044703 That thread includes both movements and dials like yours.
