This one should be here next week..
Waltham 15J Grade 165 0s (and that's a small pocketwatch, under 1.5" diamter total) from 1918.  Movement looks good, and I think I can make the hairline on the dial much less noticeable with the old q-Tip and  dial cleaner trick.. This size was usually (but not always) worn on a chain my ladies.. a 0s movement is juts uner 30mm in diameter.
The nice thing, is that if the movement cleans up well, I know where I can fidn a NOS 0S case with a display back,  Grin

I'll post better pics once I have the watch in my hands..





Cheers

That is a very nice watch.
Be good to see that up and running again.

I might have a dial in good shape if you need one. I'll check.

I do have a Dial, if it's the right size. It's got roman numerals instead of the scripted numbers, I think its a bit earlier than yours.

~29mm diameter. Feet at 10, 2:20, and 7:20. One Small hairline at 2:00-3:00 Barely visible in person, Another around 10. Also Barely visible. PM me if you need it, or I can see if I have another. I'm pretty sure I do. If its not the right size, let me know too.

No problem.

Also: A cursory glance through the pile reveals at least 2 more dials of the same size and slightly worse condition. All have Roman numerals, one has the script waltham(above), one has AWCo Waltham, one has a Block WALTHAM.
