I used to beg my dad to fish this watch out when I was a kid because it was just so fascinating to look at. After my father died, I ended up with the watch.
My father said he bought it in San Francisco in 1959. Other than that, I don't know much more about the watch.
I figured out the watch was built in 1896 by Waltham Appleton and Tracy. The font engraved on the movement makes Tracy look like "Trary." I guess it is just a weird font used by the company. It also has 17 jewels. The watch has a heavy removable crystal cover that screws off the face of the watch.
What I need to know is what model is this? The Serial # is 7577352. Any help or other information about this watch would be greatly appreciated.
