I'm new to the forum (and indeed, watches in general) and stumbled across this pretty little thing at a vintage sale - it cost me all of £4 and it seems like I might have done quite alright for myself! I'd love it if anyone could tell me a little more about it - I haven't seen anything else exactly like it so far (this has lugs for a wriststrap rather than a bow around the crown).
It's marked as an A.W.W. Co. Lady Waltham with two serial numbers, #12519353 on the movement and #38043 on the case - is it usual for these numbers to be different and what is its significance? I've looked on the Pocket Watch Database for both these numbers and found the following information:
The outer case on the back is stamped:
TRADE, (a picture of a sun, moon and star), MARK, A.L.D, ENGLISH, MAKE, 38043
The inside of the case reads:
ENGLISH, MAKE, GUARANTEED, TO BE, MADE OF TWO PLATES, OF 14ct GOLD, WITH PLATE COMPOSITION, BETWEEN, AND TO WEAR, 25 YEARS, 38048, 5F
Then the Mechanism has written on it:
A.W.W. CO. Lady Waltham, ADJUSTED, 12519353
I'd really appreciate if anyone could give me any more insight into how much the watch is worth, where is best to get it fixed (the mechanism isn't working at the moment), and if there is anything else significant about this watch!
Thank you for taking the time to read my post,
