Up for sale is a Very Nice Waltham Model 1888 Riverside Guilt Damasceened which has been serviced, is up and running and keeping decent time. It is a 17 jewel adjusted Riverside movement in guilt damascene. It is in very nice condition-virtually no scratches and just the slightest touch of rust on the ratchet wheel. It carries serial number 9525478.
It winds and sets correctly but it requires a good tug to put it in the setting position. It is housed in a Crescent Watch Case Co gold filled case, serial number 397280. Before it was polished it showed some brassing towards the outer edge of the back cover. There is a dent on the outer rim of the case-see photo-and there is a dent in the back cover at about 3 oclock and some small dents on the bezel around the crystal. The engine turned finish shows wear.
The inside of the back cover and the dust cover definitely show signs of wear and tear. The dial is in excellent condition with just a few small chips on the outer edge between the 1 and the 3 and a very faint hairline near the outer edge at the 34 minute mark. The hands are in decent condition and look good but they are a miss match. All in all its a beautiful watch. Please feel free to ask any questions.
