More than *50,000 of these watches are
now spoaking for themselves in tho pockets of

superiority over all others.
Tho superior organization and groat extent
of tho Company's Works at Waltham, enable

50 por cent, moro for their watchea than is

The invention and usc of a centre-pinion of
peculiar construction, to prevent damago to

original with tho Amoriean Watch Company,

trivances, adopted Fogg's patent pinion as ho

Hardened and tempered hair springs, now
universally admitted by watch-makers to ho

All Waltham Watches have dust-proof caps,
protecting the movement from dust and les?
soning tho necessity of tho frequent cleaning
necessary in other watchea.
Our new patent stum-winder, or keyless
watch, is alroady a decided success, and a
great improvement on any stem-winding watch
in tho American markot, and hy far the cheap?
est watch of its quality now offered to tho
