• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Two "Patrician" watches

    Here are two beautiful Waltham watches that I recently added to my collection. Both of these were cased and distributed by H.W. Matalene, an obscure casemaker who worked exclusively for Waltham (and who is my primary research focus). Both have Waltham movements marked "Patrician". This...

    An Unusual Waltham Dress Watch

    I thought I would share pictures of one of Waltham's more unusual models. These rectangular dress watches, using a thin 9-ligne movement, were produced between 1914 and 1916 and were sold at some of the finer jewelers, including Tiffany & Co. They are about as tall and as thin as Waltham's Opera...

    unusual ladies w/w winds at 12

    I have this Waltham 7-1/2 ligne round movement (circa 1916) with original dial. The dial is 24 mm long and 17 mm wide at the movement. These small movements are typically cased in very stylish gold or platinum wristwatch cases. What has me stumped is that this is set up to wind at 12...
