    Waltham Pocket Watch c.1894

    We were picking through a local antiques store and I spotted this in the display case. I didn't ask to handle it but the dial looked pretty good.

    I don’t know this area of our hobby at all, but I like the look of that - and $350 is tempting.

    need the MOVEMENT serial number - the number on the case is of secondary importance.
