Scarce Waltham “Model 3078” men’s Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1932.
This larger-sized Waltham model has a curved and faceted bezel with a recessed crown and was priced at $55.00 in 1932. It is a scarce model and I have only seen a few examples. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with no brassing. Faceted case edges are distinct and the case has an alternating satin and polished finish. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 37mm long and 29mm wide. Original two-tone dial is very good, with some patina and marks. Glass crystal is superb. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Waltham Sapphire grade manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
