This particular watch is from the second-to-last run of No. 15 movements and features characteristics inconsistent with other No. 15 movements – such as the gilt trim and the Blackletter signing style with gilt inlay on the barrel bridge.

During the time of production, the No. 15 grade was on the verge of being replaced by the No. 87. The #2612 Odd Fellows Emblematic dial appears in the 1916 Waltham Material Catalog, along with various other available designs.

  1. I have a Waltham pocket watch that I inherited. I set the time and wound it and it is keeping perfect time. My question is how does it open or does it open ? It appears to be silver and is a numerical watch with the smaller second hand. Just kind of curious about it. I feel it may be from the early 1900’s. Pam Gibbons
