Grades‎ > ‎


Very early in Model 92 production,  and only for a short time, Waltham makes the Riverside grade.  It is a beautiful movement and one can not help but speculate if it was made as a presentation movement.  It appears in three variations of the open face movement and two variations in the hunting case movement.  
A first run Riverside

The Gray Book is very misleading as to the open face Riverside.  It lists Riversides in only one run, 7489001-500. The Handwritten Records show them in four other runs.  The comparison is listed in the table below.  There are 3 variations of the open face movement which can be seen on the variations page.

The Gray Book is a little more straight forward about the hunting case Riverside but it is not 100% accurate.  The Handwritten Records are also vague because, at least as I am able to read them, they do not list run 7013101-4000.  There have been several Grade 45 movements reported from this run.
