The Waltham Stone Mountain Pocket Watch
The Stone Mountain or crystal plate Waltham pocket watch is
very interesting and very unique. These watches were never mass produced.
The upper plates were made out of stone that was brought in from Mexico.
The watch shown above is a 16 size model 1872. These contained 16 jewels.
The five pictures above show the smaller sized Stone Mountain
pocket watch. This watch is a small 4 size. These also contained 16
jewels. This watch does not have a model number and was the only watch
made in the 4 size.
If we find more detailed information on these rare Stone
Mountain watches we will add the information here. We have been doing
research on them and hope to have more information soon.
One of the most interesting collectibles from the watch
industry in America were the Waltham Riverside displays that shows all of the
parts in one 19 jewel Riverside pocket watch. These were all 16 size
watches. The layout of these varied from minor differences in the
placement of parts to major design changes in the way the parts were arraigned.
I have five of these that I have obtained over the years and out of the five
there are three different styles of layouts.
To see more of these Waltham displays you can visit our
Antique Time Neighborhood Watch message board. These are displayed in our
Horological Artifacts section.
This is a neat picture of the Waltham Vibrating Hairspring Stud. These
