    Default PS Bartlett Model 1857

    I have a movemnet only of a PS Bartlett model 1857 that has a dial with Appelton tracy on it
    The cereal number is 26159 My book dates this 1860.Why would it have a Appelton dial on a PS Bartlett watch. I do need a case and hands.
    I have seen a Appleton tray watch with a American Waltham dial. Were they interchangable or a mix up on both some where? Any ideas?

    At the time, the name of the later to be Waltham Watch Co, was The Appleton Tracy Watch Co from (1857-1859) then it became the American Watch Co.(1859-1885) The P.S.Bartlet was a grade of watch, I think that it was there highest grade being 15 jewels. It looks like your watch was finished by the American Watch Co. but the movement could have been started by A. T.. I have a 1864 57 model that has a Appleton Tracy dial and the works are marked Appleton Tracy it is in a Appleton Tracy case.

    Hi Don,

    True ATs ran up to about 15000+; however, there were many more dials so they continued to use them up to about 25000+ (not including switching that many do to these old watches--some call it sprucing them up to sell better).

    I have many honest original watches up to about this number that are original.

    The dial feet are the same for AT and AWCo.

    Also, please remember that AT is a grade of watch of the American Watch Co.

    Did you locate you hands?

    Nice to see you here on the MB.

    I like old Walthams, also.

    Jon
