Waltham Half Hunter Pocket Watch, Coal Mining Link Waltham  hunter pocket watch %%alt5%%
An antique Waltham half hunter pocket watch, with chain and miner’s lamp fob.

The watch has a stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is signed and it has the serial number 7661939 which dates it back to 1896. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The cover has a lovely inscription from the surface workers at Sovereign Pits in West Leigh, dated 1920. The Sovereign coal mining pits, initially sunk in the late 1870s, formed part of the Wigan Coalfield and had 180 underground workers and 68 on the surface.

The watch itself measures 52mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is 10ct gold plated with dark blue enamel Roman numerals to the front and the very elaborate initials HT to the back. The case was made by Aaron Dennison who was instrumental in the founding of Waltham Watch Company. There is a little marking to the front and some gentle unevenness to the case back but overall the condition is very acceptable. The small lens to the front is glass, it has a small nibble to the edge but not too noticeable.

The winding crown pushes in to open the front cover. Inside there is an acrylic lens which has yellowed slightly with age. The signed white enamel dial is in good condition and has blued steel hands… note the special half hunter hour hand so that the time can be read even when the front cover is closed.

The watch comes on a double albert with each chain measuring 23cm long including the T-bar and the clasp. There is also a later fob in the form of a miner’s lamp.
