Waltham SN 7202531

Kevin's Notes

This is the fourth watch in my collection. I picked it up at an "antiques sidewalk sale" in one of the local malls. I liked the blue numbers, and wanted a smaller 0 size watch for my collection, and it was really cheap. I was pleasantly surprised later to find out it was a 15 jewel watch, and not the 7 jewel I originally thought. (The jewel markings are buried down almost hidden by the balance wheel). I wonder who "E.A.C." was ...
