4.6 Solid Silver Waltham Hunter Pocket Watch. Hunter. 50mm. Key Wound / Key Set. Circa 1870


Movement – the gilt ¾ plate movement has a lever escapement and is signed “Made by American Watch Co, Waltham, Mass For H W Bedford, 67 Regent Street, London” # 1068092. The movement is in 70% mint condition – quite a few marks and stains

Case – the movement comes in a Sterling Silver Hunter case, which has a hinged inner, back and front cover. The front cover pops open a few degrees when you press the button on the stem in and then needs to be lifted manually open. In its resting position, it leans back past 90 degrees. The case is decorated with engine turning, coin edged sides and has a vacant cartouche. The case is in 75% mint condition – there are a few bruises on the edges of the case and rubbing but this is reflected in the price
