I'm pleased to offer for sell, a Waltham Secometer pocket watch with a rotating digital seconds dial. The Secometer is simply a fun piece that was more often produced in a gold-filled case and is not often found in a solid gold case. It has a solid, but not high-grade movement and should be considered by those that collect the unusual or just for the fun of it.
This piece was produced at the Waltham watch factories near Boston Mass in 1927 and again 80 years ago and it looks likes it popped out of a time machine. The chain and knife are excellent condition Across this Waltham 14 karat white gold filled case is 45mm not including the Art Deco bow. The case back is tight and there is a very nice Art Deco blue enameled monogram personal engraving. The case serial number is 8229628
The USA made movement is a SIGNED 17 Jewel 3 Adj. Stem set and wounds as it should. Has gold jewel setting, screwed chatons, fancy regulator and a great damaskeening. The jewels have been inspected and if you notice they are in gold jewel settings and perfect. The watch has a serial # 26361586 that dates this watch to 1927 as recorded in company records. The movement has been cleaned, oiled and adjusted. The Waltham Secometer is running strong and keeping excellent time.
The dial is totally original never touched. The dial shows a even patina. The hour markers are applied 14K yellow Arabic numerals. The blue steel hour and minute hands are fancy and matching. The second hand disc rotates as the seconds pass through the window. Very cool and unusual. The dial is covered by a excellent New Old Stock Glass crystal, free of any scratches.
The chain measures 15" including the knife. The knife has a dent on one side but does not effect the overall operation or appearance. The chain is marked Hayward. There is a Waltham box that will ship with the watch, it has a lot of wear and the lid does not stay up all of the way.
A 3 month layaway option is available. There is no restocking fee or cancellation fee's if things don't work out. A complete refund of payments upon cancellation.
