Antique Waltham 14k 17 jewel?
When she passed, it looked all dingy, so all the greedy hillbilly's she calls family wanted nothing to do with it, so I took it. Well, I cleaned it up and it looks very pretty.
I can't find any info on it though. I want to know apox age, is it real, where to find more info on it....
14k on the back and on the clasp
On the face it says 17 jewel, swiss, and Waltham.
It also has a floral pattern dial, which I can't seem to find with any other vintage Waltham.
I opened it up and on the movement it says:
waltham watch co
OXM OR WXO in very tiny letters.....
I can't seem to find a serial number though. I did look at the inside of the movement and I can see something like an F or E with a circle around it. Deeper in the movement it has a 2 followed by other numbers.
When I wind it, it also seems to be functioning after all these years. My fiance did lose the pin that keeps the hands rotating, but the hands are still mounted on the dial. The dial is also a very unique pretty flower design.
Is this worth repairing, does it look real, where can I find info? I've scowered the web, but can't seem to find any info?
