Waltham Pocket Watch

Contributed by Rod Day

Waltham Pocket Watch

Waltham Pocket Watches were among the first mass produced watches brining affordable time keeping to the general population. This one, dated 1874, was owned by my great grand father James Day (1856-1931) & it was with him during his service in the Royal Marines & when he saw action in the Egyptian War of 1882.
