Dial: enamel, sunk sub second
Movement: 6100089, American Waltham Watch Co., Savety Barrel, calibre Waltham 1891, gold plated, stem wind and set, 11 jewels, 3 visible screwed gold settings, motor barrel, Swiss lever escapement, bimetallic screw balance, Breguet hairspring

A maximum position error of 20s per day exceeds the present chronometer limit of 10s per day, but nut substantially. As this watch was scarcely worn and just cleaned, it shows the performance, 112 years ago, of a high grade ladies watch, although regarded as unadjusted. Moreover the smooth running of this watch easily outscores an average new ETA 2824-2. However, even in the U.S.A. people scarcely had enough money for both, an expensive case and a movement exceeding the base grade with 7 jewels. This especially applied to ladies watches, making this one actually a higher grade object - also refering precision and durability.
