    Reaching out to see if anyone might have a sleeve and stem for the following, or at least the part numbers for them

    Waltham 0 size- Model1891 - Grade-Seaside
    15J circa 1905
    Mixed runs that year so they also had 7j movements ( if that helps at all ) ?

    It has a Keystone stamped ( Boss label ) case
    Inside of case neck measures approx 4.63 mm

    Thanks for any info,

    Randy

    Randy, the stem and sleeve were particular to the case maker and not Waltham. About the only way is to have the pieces in hand for measurement. Some pictures with measurements may be helpful.

    Thanks..and I knew that, but thought it wouldn't hurt to include the movement info.

    That said,..I can't find the original stem or sleeve, so I have nothing to really go by.

    I ordered what was "catalogued" as the correct sized sleeve from O. Frei about a year ago, and it was too small. I think it measured around 3.93.
    Never attempted to order a stem, as without the sleeve it seemed to be a crap-shoot.

    Appreciate your input though...

    I have these two sleeves supposedly marked for Waltham 0S movements but I don't know whether the assortment has been compromised but I included some measurements for you

    Thank you for looking. This is what I keep running into though,..and I can't figure out why this case has a larger inside case neck dimension ( 4.63- land to land on the grooves ).
    I checked it about 3 times, using a digital dial caliper. The one I purchase from O. Frei was about the size of the one that you have - 3.72.
    It's just too small......

    Thanks again though...really appreciate you looking !

    Looked through all of my sleeves, everything is either larger or smaller, you may have to find a junk case missing a cover or something like that.

    Thanks...I was thinking that might be my only option at this point.

    BTW..I looked through my stuff...no 14s movements at all...so sorry,..but I'll try to search for you as well. Maybe I can stumble onto one that isn't running for a decent price......

    found one on Ebay but it has to go for a decent price as the movements are worth too much.

    Makes sense..they seem to be fairly rare from what I read on them today. That said, I'll still keep on the lookout for one. Take care Richie !

    Meant to say, NOT worth too much. Hope you have success in your search.
