Serial listing confirms 1885, ex balance, stem set, o.f., premium parts. Still unsure it is siderial time adjusted and Lincoln name used for other Walthams. Would a watch timeing machine indicate siderial time? I suppose a 24 hour comparison might might only show inaccuracy. artbissell

A sideareal day is roughly 4 minutes shorter than a civil day. This difference will be readily apparent on a timing machine.

THANKS for reminder. 4 minutes in 24 hrs probably enough for running comparison with a quartz clock and I have a serviced model 92 Siderial probably good enough to compare. Unless it was adjusted in the past toward standard time. art

This odd model 83 I am certain is a siderial watch. It easily ran 24 hours with one winding indicating the 2 minutes difference in 12 hours and 4 minutes in 24 hours. Any other ABE LINCOLN Wathams or model 83 siderials known ? art

Thanks for photos showing another. Numbered about 500,000 serial higher. So not unique. art b
