Stock#: JH60998

DESCRIPTION: LPW - Waltham, Appleton Tracy & Co, Civil War era, 15J, 10S, 18K gold original HC with front and rear bisected by a beautiful diagonal ribbon having black and blue enamel inlay, black tracery enamel around front and rear shoulders, gold cuvette engraved "F. to J. April 26th 65," white enamel SS dial, KWKS (key not included with this lot), gilt mvt, s#110556. Gross weight of assembled watch 48.4 dwt (75.3 g). A particularly attractive gold and enameled pendant watch dating closely with the ending of the American Civil War. This movement is from a production run listed in Waltham factory records as having been finished between February and April of 1865. This dating, along with the cuvette inscription, places the birth of this watch among the ending events of the Civil War; as General Lee surrendered on April 9th marking the effective end of the conflict, as Confederate President Jefferson Davis was captured on May 10th, and as General Stand Watie was the final Confederate general to surrender on June 23rd.
CONDITION: Mvt: Running, excellent cosmetic mvt condition overall, main plate with spot near winding arbor escutcheon, few additional lesser surface spots elsewhere; dial with hl from 12 to center, short hl above seconds-register, tiny nick to left rim of seconds-register hole; excellent hands, hour a polished spade style with some oxide to its spade, minute does not have a polished spade; case shows hardly any wear, small but prominent ding to front center, few small nicks elsewhere to front, ding to lower-left shoulder of rear in area just below enameled ribbon, sizable areas of loss of original black enamel to left side of front ribbon and lower-left side of rear ribbon which have been filled with soft black material; tight bow, push shows little wear; good glass crystal.

Stock#: JH61262

DESCRIPTION: LPW - Illinois, unusual high grade pendant watch with jeweled barrel arbor, at least 17J, 6S, HC model mvt in sidewinder orientation in nickel OF display case, white enamel DS dial with fancy tree branch style Roman numerals, SW-LS, jeweled barrel arbor, two-tone gilt and nickel damascene, no visible s#. An interesting and very unusual piece for the Illinois collector with its jeweled barrel arbor, lack of a visible serial number, and its unusual dial. Barrel arbor jeweling was not used among any regular production Illinois grades in this size, and this movement's notably large raised gold jewel setting on its barrel arbor is very eye-catching and attractive. We believe this watch was likely a specially made one-off piece and we suspect that it may have been made as a factory employee's (or employee's wife's) personal watch.
CONDITION: Mvt: Running, fine cosmetic mvt condition overall, reduced two-tone color, three long fine scratches to barrel bridge, train bridge with a discolored spot in space between escape wheel jewel setting and edge, some lesser spots elsewhere to train bridge, regulator with mild oxide; dial with outer chapter hls at 6 and 8, few tiny pinpoint nicks to rim of seconds-register hole, some very small edge flakes under bezel; excellent hour and seconds-hand, fair minute hand with substantial oxide to its spade and tip; case shows little wear, no dents or dings; tight now, crown shows little wear; glass crystals with few mild scratches.
