Waltham SN 11122856
Kevin's NotesThis is my first pocketwatch. Well, actually, my second. I remember as a teenager having a silver pocket watch with the radium dials, but I don't know what happened to that. This watch was a christmas gift from my parents.

The crystal has a few minor scratches
The engraving on the back of the case is a bit worn, but all the details can still be seen.
The dial has a very minor crack that goes from 47 minutes, through the centre of the dial, to the 19 minute mark. I didn't even notice this until I saw the blown up pictures for the web site.
The watch runs flawlessly. I'm not sure if alterations were made to the movement or if the parts are all original.
