Up for sale is a rare Pre-Civil War Appleton Tracy & Co. Waltham 18s 1857 model key wind pocket watch with the very rare original dial. This is the most unusual. of the original early Waltham dials, that I have seen! This dial was probably painted by Moorhouse while he was employed by Waltham. This watch was made in 1858. This is one of the most beautiful pre Civil War Walthams I have ever seen! This watch has just been serviced (all parts removed, cleaned, inspected, new unbreakable mainspring, oiled, and adjusted) and it is running great. This watch is running strong and keeping good time! The movement is a very beautiful Appleton Tracy with the original solid gold balance wheel, nice diamond end stone, large beautiful jewels, and very nice plates. This movement looks beautiful! The Appleton Tracy dial is the original and it is perfect. The hands are nice and look to be the original. The movement is housed in a very beautiful 18k solid gold hunter's case. The case is in very nice condition. The case has a good lift spring and a good button. The hinges feel great. Everything works as it should! The watch has a beautiful glass crystal. This watch is ready for display! A key will be included!
