1893 Chicago World’s Fair Waltham Pocket Watch



Presenting a Classic piece of Antique Americana. One for the collector of pocket watches, Waltham, American collectibles and horology. This Waltham pocket watch was made in 1893 and was sold at the World Fair in Chicago that year. Waltham exhibited at the World’s Fair and sold these watches and personalized them for the buyer. The buyers name was inscribed on the face dial (but it has been ‘rubbed’ by wear and tear over the years so that we cannot make out the name of the original owner). The smaller dial or second hand dial was then inscribed with the Chicago World’s Fair, to record that it was sold there. Made by P.S. Bartlett. Silveroid Case made by Keystone. No jewels.
