Very scarce Waltham “Doctor’s Pulsations” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in 10K yellow gold fill, circa 1940.

Waltham produced this variation of its “Upton” model with a variety of different dials, with this red “pulsations” dial marketed to doctors being the scarcest. This unique dial allowed doctors to quickly calculate a patient’s pulse using the sweep seconds hand. It is in crisp, excellent condition with only very thin line of faint brassing to the bezel rim. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 38mm long and 26mm wide and takes a 14mm strap. Original dial is superb, has embossed gold numerals. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 18-jewel Waltham Premier manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
