Montgomery Ward 17 jewel Crescent movement.
Could he have gotten it wrong? He paid $18 for it
and order a silverine case for $1.50 HELP
Please
Curator Response: It is possible that the customer purchased a Waltham Crescent St. movement from the Montgomery Ward catalog. Alternatively, it could have been a private label manufactured by Waltham for Montgomery Ward.
