    kevano,
    I moved your inquiry to a topic of it's own, you had tagged it on to a old post abount another watch which didn't relate.
    You will get some answers on your watch.:)

    Howdy,

    I'm new to this forum and not sure I'll be much help but let's see what a newbie can do.

    First of all I have been using the following site a LOT for helping identify a few watches I've stumbled across in my travels. It has a lot of information about the various watch companies along with fairly good records of serial numbers.

    What exactly is it you would like to find out about your watch? From the above site it seems that it is in the 1900s range. If you have any specific questions about it I can do my best to help research it or I'm sure one of the other very knowledgeable people here can tell you everything about it by heart (they are great folks around!).

    Hopefully that gives you some place to start and as always google is a man's best friend I discover most of my information by just typing in relevant search terms and see what I can discover.

    Good luck!

    Welcome to the board, Kevano :)

    You have a Model 1891 Seaside 0 size 15 jewel - it's a lady's watch, and more than half a million of these were manufactured.

    I can't make out the case markings in your photos, but if you want to know about the case (including whether or not it is solid gold) then you should post clearer photos of all the case markings.

    For your future interest (and Chuck's) the best resource available for identifying Waltham watches is the NAWCC database here.
