Here is a nice Waltham Chronometer from the World War I era or right after for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself.
Beautiful 1910 Waltham Chronometer here from the Waltham Clock Company in Waltham, MA. Waltham first started making this model chronometer in 1907. This is considered a size 37 per the Waltham and NAWCC records. The movement is in operating condition. The seconds hand works as well as the hour and minute hands on the face. Says 8 Days on the face as well. Beautiful off white colored face. Little to no finish loss. Says, "Waltham" on the face.
Cannot say if this Chronometer was used in World War I, or if this was a surplus item. The serial number on the movement is 18074092 which dates the piece to 1910.
Some minor loss of finish to the chronometer case. The push button latch and the key lock are both operable. The metal Waltham tag is in place on the outside of the case. Beautiful brass corner protectors all securely still in place in the case. The glass inside the case is still in place. 4 pieces of felt on the bottom of the case to protect the surface you place the piece on. Someone hand etched some notations onto the back plate of the case in the past.
Some minor finish loss to the finish on the brass gimbal that holds the movement and some finish loss on the movement body. The two hinged bodies of the case are securely attached to the base. The clock comes with the locking key for the case which is quite uncommon.
There is a blister in the glass over the face between the "8" and "9", see pics. No other cracking or blistering of the glass.
Clean looking movement, see pics. This is what is referred to as a gimbal mounted chronometer. The locking pin for the gimbal is in place and operates as expected. The movement is 15 jewels as noted on the back of the movement. The seconds hand operates as expected. The clock has been in running condition since we acquired it. The wind spring feels sound when wound. The movement has not been serviced or repaired in any manner by us. The movement has the number "18074092" which dates the piece to 1910.
The maker's label is on the front of the inner case. Other items that you might see in the pics are not included, only the Waltham Chronometer described here.
The Waltham Chronometer case is 5" tall, by 4.75" across, by 4-7/8" wide. The clock face is 2-3/8" across. The outer case is 7-7/8" tall, by 10-13/16" across, by 8-13/16" wide.
