Time for a thread about Schierwater & Lloyd (SL) of Liverpool.

SL Walthams are a fairly common sight on the uk ebay site, and generally sell for a small premium. SL is one of the commonest Private Labels we see, behind Farringdon and Fattorini. A long way behind.
Models sold included 1890, 1891, & 1899/1908 (the commonest) - usually in low grades e.g. Traveler. What other makes & models do we have?
They also sold non-Walthams too, e.g. Omega.
Maybe somebody can tell us some history of the company.

Photos here are of Waltham Pocket Watch: Serial Number 12209648 (Grade Seaside)
This is a typical Waltham model 1891 with standard dial. It has turned up in a monogrammed 20-year ALD case, in about average condition (i.e. missing the crystal and hour hand, and not running.)

Thanks.

This one just in... a mid-grade model 1895 in what is almost a very nice A.B case, apart from the crown being missing. Looking down the neck, it looks like someone snapped off the stem half way.
Currently debating with myself whether to just rehome it in a non-broken case.
It runs for a few seconds if I wiggle it, so I believe it to be fixable.

Nice watch. A replacement stem-sleeve-crown should be pretty manageable. I recommend keeping it together.

Schierwater and Lloyd did sell some higher quality Walthams. This is a 1888 Model Amn Grade that is from a single run of just one hundred and fifty 17 jewelled hunter movements.
It is in a 14K gold filled demi-hunter case by A.L. Dennison.
