Tah-daaaaaaaaah!!!



The whistle is a replica metropolitan police whistle.

The pen is a 1920s Wahl-Eversharp art deco lever-filler. Gold-filled barrel & cap.

The watch is a Waltham M1908 made in 1926.

Really nice! thumbup.gif I actually have a small collection of ACME whistles, including an antique City whistle (it was a slightly bigger model of the Metropolitan whistle).

The whistle says:

THE
ACME REFEREE
ENGLAND


on the barrel. At first, I thought it may be a duplicate whistle made by another company. But now I'm not so sure. It looks and sounds exactly like one of those old-timey police-whistles, which is what I've been after for years. I just think they're cute and sound great.

After some careful reading, I think the fountain pen dates from 1927.

The watch should be back from my watchmaker in a week or two. w00t!

Oh, I love those police whistles. That is a great acquisition. thumbup.gif

I would love to see some watch pictures after you get it back from the watchmaker.

Certainly, Laura. Very happy to oblige. My watchmaker said to expect it back in a month, and that was nearly three weeks ago now, so it should be back around the 15th of July (hopefully).

Just making good on my promise, here you are, Laura:

At first glance:

Front:



Back:



Cuvette:



The cuvette or dust-cover was rather heavily brassed. As nobody's ever going to SEE IT, I didn't see the point in worrying over it. But the watchie did a real good job in trying to make it look at least half-presentable!

Under the Hood:

Dial:



I'm not much of a photographer. To me, that shot is awesome enough. The dial has a hairline running from about 11:30 down to 6:30 on the dial, but it's barely noticeable.

Movement shot 1:



Look how SHINY it is!

Movement shot 2:



I apologise, I am hopeless with macro shots. It says:

Am.W.Co.

Seven Jewels.

[Serial Number]

In the words of Joseph Bruce Ismay: "...full particulars later..."

Here are the full particulars:

Watchmaker: American Waltham Watch Company. Waltham, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
Case: Dennison 20-year gold-filled case.
Style: Hunting-case.
Size: 16.
Jewel-count: 7.
Model: 1908.
Manufactured: 1926.
Working: You betcha!

Here's a picture I took mainly to show the watch - so you can just see an older model VP.
