    18k?? hallmark

    Spotted this old Waltham from the overseas market. Case says “18k” and is beautiful; but not sure if it’s real or not. Anybody have any knowledge of this hallmark? No other hallmarks. Is that staining from being acid tested?

    Looking for expertise — I’ve newly acquired a Riverside Maximus 12s 12million serial number without a seconds hand. After doing a little of my own research, I’ve noted 2 different styles of seconds hand with the same spade hour/minute hands. Which seconds hand is more period correct for this...

    Restoration Question

    I’m trying to restore a broken down Waltham Riverside Maximus. I’m collecting a few movements with broken/missing parts and hope to put together a functional gem. Will I have any trouble swapping wheels (and maybe jewels) between same models? Are the train wheels the same between on open face vs...
