Up for sale today is an exceptionally beautiful and very desirable 9k SOLID GOLD 1918 WWI Waltham RED 12 Trench Watch, housed in a 9k Dennison case that features a high end 15 jewel movement, the original factory crown with a matching 9k SOLID GOLD buckle. This absolutely remarkable piece of American/English craftsmanship is in superb cosmetic condition. Our Great Grandfather's knew how to make things that would last for generations! The incredibly beautiful movement was just completely taken apart and serviced on 1-11-2022, a new mainspring has also been installed. It's now in superb running condition and keeping excellent time. This watch has been tested on a professional timegraph 5000 Machine for accuracy so rest assured! Take another look at picture number three again, this movement is clean as a whistle and stunningly beautiful! I'm sure that you have noticed by now that this is not your ordinary trench watch case by a long shot! This is a 9k SOLID GOLD trench watch case that was manufactured by the Dennison Watch Case Company of Birmingham England in 1918. The hallmarks on the inside of the case back are as follows: .375 for 9k gold, 9 for 9k gold content, the anchor for Birmingham England, the letter "t" for 1918 and ALD for Aaron Lufkin Dennison. The hinged case back only opens up to 90 degrees, just as it should. The bezel and case back both snap crisply together, just as they should. The case has been lightly buffed, looks fantastic. Plus, this watch still has the original factory crown! This watch is simply incredible! The enamel dial on this WWI Waltham Trench Watch is among the most desirable they ever made, the Arabic RED 12 military dial! The dial features a white face, Arabic numerals, an outer chapter of minute markers, the correct blue steel hands for this dial, signed "WALTHAM USA" near the center with the RED 12 at the top. This historic and iconic WWI Waltham Trench Watch has been fitted with a hand made black leather Kitchener Strap that absolutely makes the watch! The strap was American made in Nebraska. Take a look at picture number two again, this watch looks stunning on the wrist! The strap will fit a wrist up to about 8 inches. A 9k SOLID GOLD buckle has been sewn into the strap! It will have a bit of wear on it because I seriously could not resist wearing this one for a few days, can you blame me? Here are the movement details: 1918 Waltham, 15 jewels, size 3/0s version, serial number 21414500, grade 365, model 1907. They just don't make them like this anymore! The 9k SOLID GOLD case measures 38mm lug tip to lug tip, 31.6mm without the original factory crown with a 10mm lug diameter. A brand new glass crystal has been installed using UV cement and a UV curing machine. I also installed a new inner sleeve in the crown tube, it now has a nice firm pop, just as it should. This watch is ready to be worn and shown off, it will surely get noticed! I put a lot of time and effort into this incredibly desirable WWI Waltham RED 12 Trench Watch, I'm sure that you will appreciate the quality and quantity of work that has been done.
