1864 American Watch Co. / Waltham Appleton Tracy CIVIL WAR Pocket Watch, 18 size - Coin Silver

Highly Collectible - 1 Year Warranty

One of the iconic American pocket watch companies was American Watch Co., later known as Waltham for the city in which it was founded.

In 1860, as President Abraham Lincoln was elected, the country was in Civil War. Production ground to a halt. However, the company decided to downsize to the lowest possible level to keep the factory open. It worked: Upon his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln became the proud owner of a Waltham watch.

We are very pleased to offer today this Civil War Waltham, that according to the company's hand-written ledger, was made in September of 1864 (see a photo of the page below). Here is a little more about it...

* Handsome and heavy coin silver case

* Original porcelain dial in beautiful condition and blue steel hands

* Large 18 size, measuring a full 57mm in diameter

* Key wound movement with winding key

Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

This a rare opportunity to own an exciting historical timepiece from a prominent American watchmaker.
