Thought I'd share my latest acquisition with you. I've always wanted a Crescent St but they've been out of my price range so when this 21j example came up on the popular auction site I couldn't resist as the start price seemed low.

Well I couldn't believe it when no one else bid on it and I won. Lovely condition movement. I was a bit worried that the dial was a repro but on close examination, no its totally genuine and flawless, not even a hairline.

I don't normally go for "Railroad" watches, I only have two others, but I couldn't resist. Flawless screw front and back NAWCO case as well. I had a good period box by Kemps of Bristol (Waltham retailers) for it that fitted it like a glove.

Your 16S Crescent Street is a very nice watch, and staying on this same theme, I thought I would share my Crescent Street that is a bit older, and one size bigger. I acquired this #626,142 back in 2001 at a sale in Kokomo, IN, one of five watches I acquired that August day. It is housed in a triple-hinged 4 oz. sterling silver case that is nice condition, considering its age. The entire watch weighs 6.2 ounces, so it would have definitely been noticed while being carried. Brad Maisto, Kentucky Floral #44 Secretary

Congrats on your watch, it's lovely. I also have an early Crescent Street Model 1870, serial number 470545. It's housed in a heavy 6 ounce silver case. Curious if anyone in the watch community has an earlier serial number?
