Waltham Watch Co. 18 size 17 jewel open face lever-set Appleton Tracy & Co. with rare double-sunk enamel dial having a multicolor Lehigh Valley Railroad logo signature.  A beautiful example of this rare watch featuring one of Waltham's most iconic railroad marked dials.  I believe this example is likely all original as it features the eye catching two-tone Appleton Tracy & Co.Model 1883 movement that is most often seen with this dial and as it is housed in a 4 ounce sterling silver case that shows no sign of having held another movement.  Movement serial number is 7906103.

Running and lost about 2 minutes over 24 hours and I think likely hasn't seen a servicing in quite some time.  Absolutely beautiful movement with superb 2-tone color and luster.  Dial faces up beautifully with just a few subtle flaws to note which are a faint outer chapter hairline at 21 minutes, a faint outer chapter hairline at 30 minutes, a very small fine scratch above the upper left of the Lehigh Valley logo, and some small bits of mild edge rub under the case bezel along the left side.  Case is in strong condition with an excellent in hand look and feel having only a ding or mild small dent at the upper left perimeter of its rear.
