    Hi everyone,

    I have a size 6 15J Am. Waltham ser.# 6875022.
    On the dial it has C.A.W.Crosby & Son Boston Mass., and on the plate the same thing and Am.Waltham Watch Co. I would like to find some information about this watch. I have the Waltham Pocket Watch Identifacation book there is no information on watches with private companys names. Can someone help me or lead me to where I can find out this information.

    THANKS

    Hi, I happen to have your watch's close relative. It's a Waltham 6 size, sn: 6875024. Just like yours, it's a private label for the Boston jeweler C.A.W. Crosby & Sons. It's amazing their serial number are only two apart...[​IMG][​IMG]

    The pocket watch database list your watch as a model 1890, grade X, production date of 1896 to 1899. Sometimes it is hard to find information on Private Label watches.

    The full description is Seaside X. These middle grade 6 size watches were named Seaside with a suffix letter that we mostly do not understand.

    Follow this reference for a link to both the ledger and gray book pages for this watch. Jerry Treiman did the original transcription for this group back in 2002. http://nawccinfo.nawcc.org/LookupSN.php?serial=6875024&sernumin=
