Waltham 1899-Cronometro Victoria
R.R. Fogel of New York had an agreement to sell Waltham watches into South American markets, the special order movements were styled "Cronometro" and came from various Waltham product lines and grades. The 1899 model "Victoria" is a 15 jewel movement similar to the -620. The movements were often recorded in production records simply as "Export" and could be in mixed runs so it is not known how many were made. But they are rare in UK.
