    What Are the Rarest Watches in Your American Collections?

    Not as rare or as high end as some of the watches others have shown, but still scarce are my Waltham 1883 21 jewel watches. Only three runs of the 21 jewel special were made. Two runs of 250 of which all examples I have seen are two tone and a single run of 200 of which I have only seen 2...

    What Are the Rarest Watches in Your American Collections?

    The gray book list it as adjusted (not position) and a model 92 roadmaster made just before it is also listed as adjusted.

    What Are the Rarest Watches in Your American Collections?

    Here is a 16 size waltham roadmaster, I believe only 50 were made. It was bought as a movement and I married it with this case and am looking for something closer to what it might have been in originally. Not a real high end watch adjusted to only 3 positions and with just 17 jewels.

    waltham 1883 tu-tone special

    Just acquired a 1883 Waltham tu-tone special. From my limited research I have only found this watch in two runs in the Waltham graybook. I have found 3 examples in the 14955501-14959000 run, and one example in the 14952001-14954500 run. If all the watches in each of these runs was a tu-tone...

    CPR Locomotive & Tender Dial

    great find, you should post on the what its worth forum, I would like to see what other people think the dial might be worth. I personally have never seen this dial with C.P.R. on it, I have seen the same dial on most Dominion railways watches. Nice find Dennis

    $ waltham 21 jewel 1883

    thanks Fred, and with the serial numbers from the American watch tread I really think this first run of 21 jewel 83's may have all been nickel finish!

    $ waltham 21 jewel 1883

    only non tu-tone 21 jewel1883 I have seen. Its serial number puts it in a run of only 200 and only 700 of the 21 jewel specials were made, all the watches I have seen from the other runs were tu-tone. So maybe only 200 made in the regular nickel finish??? The watch is not in great shape as it...

    Day 3 at Brimfield-the Jackpot

    found this 21 jewel 1883 the other day, it is the first 21 jewel special I have seen that isn't a tu tone. It is from the 1734001-17340200 run so I wonder if maybe those 200 were regular nickel finish?
