Waltham 100 Jewels from the 1960s, one of Waltham's infamous watches from the "Jewel Wars" era, this one is based on a 17 jewel caliber as (a. Shield).
2063 movement, with the extra 83 jewels placed on either side of the circumference of the automaton rotor (you can see the jewels on the outer circumference). These extra jewels served no real useful function and were basically a marketing tool, supposedly to ease the movement of the rotor and keep it free of "scratches".
This extremely rare movement bears the inscription "waltham geneve swiss cyclotron 100 jewels". The additional
83 jewels are distributed in a decorative pattern around the circumference, below the retaining ring. According to the discussions on the nawcc website, this is an extremely unusual and very rare movement made to celebrate the 100th anniversary or similar milestone of the Waltham Watch Company. This could not only be an interesting research project, but an important piece for a watch collector or the nawcc museum... Everyone is looking for a watch, this is a chance to have one of the few remnants from the great history and scale of the great Waltham Watch Co. and I have not seen anything like this anywhere....
The watch will be carefully packaged and shipped insured with tracking.

No box and no papers.
