This piece starts with a quadruple hinged case which is stamped inside the front cover A. Sterling – 194044. The inner dust cover also bears the same serial number along with a “5” denoting the weight of the case. The inner back cover continues to display the matching serial number and carries the original watch paper issued by Waltham guaranteeing its Sterling Silver content. The back of the watch paper has a hand written inscription that reads Feb 16 – 85 Maria and a last name that is ineligible. The front cover is ornately decorated with leaf and vine patterns along with an unsigned initial shield in the center. The back cover is similarly engraved. The front cover springs open to 90 degrees when released. The back cover opens to just past 90 degrees. The front and back cover hinges are tight with no play. The back cover hinge doesn’t have any noticeable play but has sustained just enough wear that it no long supports the heavy cover by itself. The covers all close tight and the the bow has remained tight. The case shows only light, even pocket wear and has aged gracefully. This is a bright, clean case, in very good overall condition with all of the engraving remaining strong and plainly visible. The white single sunk porcelain dial is marked with black roman hour chapters and minute marks. The dial looks to be perfect. No hairlines, scratches or edge chips. The blued steel hands look in nice condition and have mirrored edges. A hinged bezel houses the glass crystal and opens to allow the time to be set from the dial side. The crystal is scratch free. The 18sz, 13 jewel, Model 1883, gilt, full plate key wind and key set movement is in good condition showing only minor service marks. It is signed R. Robbins – Waltham, Mass.
