Question: How can I date my Waltham pocket watch?

Each timepiece has been engraved with a serial number since 1852, starting with number 50. The serial number will pinpoint the year of manufacture but not the exact date. Additionally, Waltham identified each pocket watchs model name on the movement. Serial numbers to date the watch are only found on movements.

Where is the serial number on a Waltham pocket watch?

All Waltham pocket watches have a serial number stamped on the movement (the works) inside the watch. The serial number can be checked against an online Waltham pocket watch list, which will give the approximate year of manufacture. Waltham pocket watch serial numbers can be accessed by opening the case back.

Are Waltham pocket watches valuable?

Waltham watches are highly collectible and some specimens are a worthwhile investment. Most Waltham pocket watches have some value, even if its only for scrap and parts. Of course, the only way to know the true value is to take your Waltham watch to a professional watch valuer or a Waltham pocket watch expert.

Are old watch parts worth anything?

Watches have many moving pieces that are valuable when doing other restoration work. Particularly with vintage jewelry, often spare parts are worth a lot as the manufacturers may not make those parts anymore.
