Waltham 3-OS 15J grade 315 ladies' pocket watch #22901448, handsome nickel split plate movement with raised jewel settings and a fancy concentric circle damascene pattern, mint porcelain enamel dial with fancy Arabic style numbers, red 5 minute markers and a subsidiary seconds register, blue steel spade style hands, smooth polish Sterling silver hinge-back (HB) case with a domed glass crystal, fancy bow on a swivel pendant and a detailed, elaborate-script inscription on the back, possibly reading "Sr. Mary Aquinas Fr. June 12-25-'38", case is showing light event wear overall, measures approx. 31mm in diameter x 40mm in length x 11mm thick (crystal included).

We do not have a detailed provenance for the ownership of this watch, so we are not selling this watch with assurance it was in possession of the renowned Sr. Mary Aquinas aka. "The Flying Nun", however the watch manufacture date of 1919-1920 does correspond to her lifespan and we feel it is a reasonable possibility that this may have been a watch gifted to her in 1938 as per the inscription. An interesting, vintage watch in excellent+ condition, sure to be an item of curiosity for enthusiasts of early American aviation history!

Exactly as described - looks and works great. Truly beautiful piece of American watchmaking! I bought two (this one and the Illinois grade 172) and will post identical reviews. Both have pretty decorations of the movement and are great! Responsive seller!

I absolutely love this watch. It is even better than described. Very fast shipping. It can be kind of scary buying a vintage watch online, since it is not a brand new item, and you wonder what you might get. But with the accurate description and pictures provided by pmtime and their wanting the customer to be completely satisfied, you don't have to worry. I was so pleased, I ended up buying a second vintage pocket watch from them.
