Just acquired a 1883 Waltham tu-tone special. From my limited research I have only found this watch in two runs in the Waltham graybook. I have found 3 examples in the 14955501-14959000 run, and one example in the 14952001-14954500 run. If all the watches in each of these runs was a tu-tone there would be about 6000 of these tu-tones out there. I collect mostly Waltham tu-tones and was wondering if anyone has any better info on this watch. They really are a nice looking timepiece.

They are great looking movements, and nice Canadian dials.

Nice looking watches.

I don't have any specific info on these, but (fwiw) it would surprise me if some 6000 were made of this variant.

just found a thread from 2010 "Waltham special 825 tu tone" that had lots of good info on this watch. if I knew how I would add it to that thread. Thanks for the feedback so far!
