Does anybody know when they went from "Waltham Watch Company" on the face to just "Waltham"?

Or if they went the other way.  I have been trying to put a date on this one, and the closest I have found was ID'ed to a 1913 Packard.  Any suggestions for further research???

Thank you all!

Yes - that is one of the few sources I could find.  Now one source tells me that the name - "Waltham Watch Co." - indicated 15 jewels.  I have seen Rolls Royce attached to this style, but only by somebody who wanted to sell one  Grin

Still researching.  This is good!


Cheers!

Okay, further research indicates that it is from a Packard, around 1915; probably a Twin-Six. 

Here is a pictorial representation of an original in situ, as it were:



Notice that it is mounted to the top of the speedometer - this explains the mount and the curious curve to the bottom of the mount, and the somewhat unique mahogany base that has been constructed for it to convert it to a desk clock.

So - does anybody have a source for Waltham parts?  This one is missing the crown.


Thanks!


Cheers!
