HUGE Vintage Waltham CAR clock POcket watch UNUSUAL PIECE
Imagine a pocket watch on steroids and then you can see how HUGE This car clock is. IT would have probably been mounted in a casing of some sort ( see photo of an example which is not included in this sale). I was told many of these were put into chauffeur driven limos . It is a really great car clock by Waltham. Basically it is a very super large and heavy Pocket Watch, but it runs for a week. About 3" x 3.1/2" not counting stem. THis one has the illuminated dials which would let you see it at night. In modern days you could incorporate this into many places like a Desk or small table, paperweight, or even a car! Waltham clocks designed for cars featured heavy duty construction and wind indicators. eight day, sort of like a large pocket watch, but would run for a week.SO you know if this was made for bumpy roads it has to be a durable clock. It is running as I am typing but please note I am not a clock collector so I don't know anything about these except a little history. We offer Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from. Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm. Please use photos to make your decisions.
