Waltham P.S. Bartlett #22295427 with Duo-Tone Plates

For a short time in the late 1910s, the American Waltham Watch Company produced 16-Size P.S. Bartlett and No. 620 movements with duo-tone plates – featuring an elegant gilt damaskeened finish on the bridge plates and nickel finish on the balance cock and pillar plate. Because of this beautiful duo-tone finish combination, these movements attract the eye of many collectors looking for something uncommon.

  1. I actually have one of these and I love it! I have been convinced by many people that it is a freak mistake, and that someone swapped parts to make it a “Frankenwatch”, but now I am thinking that it is in fact quite special! Let me know if you want me to upload some photos!

    • Yes. I would love to see some more examples of these. Feel free to upload them to your account on the database site. Thanks!
