The Waltham 1908 Marquis

 This version of the famous 1908 model was made for the English market and tastes having a gilt movement with blued screws in the English fashion. It is basically a 1908-Traveler but with 15 Jewels.

They are not that common but here are two:


Top is a half Hunter from 1917 in an English Filled gold case by Dennison, by this time the nice screw set jewels had been replaced by machine set.

Bottom is an open faced version from  1912, in Filled Gold by the Illinois Watch Case Company of America.
