Waltham Creates New Crescent Watch

Mar 05, 2010
Waltham was the first horological company to produce ultra-precise chronometry instruments for the railway companies in North America and India. In the 1900’s, the brand’s “Crescent St” watch became a massive hit and it still continues to win the hearts of watch enthusiasts.

Now, the watchmaker celebrates the come-back of its legendary model, reinterpreted in a modern way. COSC-certified, the novel Waltham watch is distinguished by functional reliability and superior horological quality.

The new Crescent watch accommodates a self-winding movement - La Joux-Perret 3513 calibre, incorporating a 22K white gold rotor. It gives life to the functions of indicating hours, minutes, seconds, date, as well as power reserve.

The Waltham high precision instrument has been created in a variety of case materials: 18K white gold, 18K pink gold or 18K yellow gold. The case is equipped with a crown, embellished with a blue spinel cabochon. The watch face exhibits a convex sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The brand has also fitted the watch with a sapphire case-back, which features an interior anti-glare treatment. The timepiece boasts 30-meter water-resistance.

The Crescent watch shows off a dial, performed in black or white. It is completed with numerals and hour-markers, treated with a luminous compound. The latter considerably improves the clarity of the dial. Just as well, the display demonstrates an oversized double date window, nestled at 12 o’clock. It is joined by the power reserve indicator, located at 6 o’clock.

The breathtaking Waltham Crescent watch is secured to the wearer’s wrist on a black alligator leather strap with a buckle, rendered in 18K white, pink or yellow gold.
