Waltham 1908-Vanguard 23J
I don't normally photograph work in process but I thought I would make an exception for this one; A Waltham 1908-Vanguard from 1913/14, it is a lever set movement with 23 jewels (including the mainspring) and is adjusted to heat, cold, isochronism and 5 positions. And as you can see it has nice gold embellishments and damascening all over the place.
As is often found with these railroad grade watches the case is in base metal but it should still look good when finished.
