    Manufactured by the Waltham Watch Company just before the Civil War in the U.S.A.
    Serial Number: 28887
    Grade: P. S. Bartlett
    Model: 1859, 3/4 plate thin model
    Size: 18
    Jewels: 15
    Key Wind & Key Set movement
    This run of production was 50 movements, starting with serial number 28841 on October 1, 1860, and the end of this production ended with serial number 28890 on October 31, 1860. This watch with serial number 28887 was the 4th from the end of this run of production. The Civil War started on April 12, 1861.
    The seconds hand is not correct, so I need to look for a correct one.
    Thanks for taking the time to stop in,,
    Dave

      This is spectacular!

      Cool watch. Why such a seemingly small amount made?
    4. pw-collector pw-collector, 4 years ago
      Caperkid, This was just one run. There were 50 runs of the model 1859 with a total production of 1,572 model 1859 movements.
      Thanks for the comments & appreciation:

      Thanks for the information David I bet the watch has been a few places in it's day.

      Caperkid, There could be (at least a dream of a collector) a chance it was carried onto the battlefield during the Civil War. If one of these could only talk!!
