Waltham 18s 11J, circa 1884

Model 1877, "PS Bartlett"

Stem Wind, Lever Set

Original 4 ounce Coin Silver Hunter Case

Dial:  This original single sunk dial is signed "A. W. Co. WALTHAM" and is in excellent condition! It features black Roman numerals and has just a couple of small hairlines visible under magnification, as seen in the photo. Original dials are very tough to find better shape than this! The spade hands are deep blue and appear to be in excellent condition.

Movement:  The shiney gold colored gilt finished movement features an expansion balance, a patent regulator, and screw down jewel settings. This well running "P.S. Bartlett" high grade movement has been professionally cleaned, oiled, and has a new main spring. It is running well and keeps good time!

Case:  This original 4 ounce coin silver hunter case is in good condition overall. There is lots of wear, but most of the fancy engraving is not worn off. It is marked "FAHYS COIN No. 1" in the inside of the back lid, and marked "4" inside the dust cover. The stiff bow appears original and is in good shape. The crown is yellow instead of silver, as found. Many times the silver wore off and they were yellow underneath. It functions properly as well. The front lid opens further than 90 degrees, but opens and closes properly. The inner dust cover hinge is a little weak, but functional. All other hinges, springs, and the latch function properly. The offset hinges appear to be gold, which was common for hinged cases when this was made. This is a real nice example of a 130+ year old silver hunter case and shows very well.

Crystal: The clear glass crystal is in excellent condition and shows off this pristine dial very well.

The model 1877 is one of the predecessors to the highly produced later model 1883. These are getting very hard to find in their original cases. The total weight of this coin silver case and movement is just over 5.7 ounces!
