Just something noticed: For a time, map and atlas engravers used the convention of halo-fourishes to highlight a name. I see it all the time in published stuff from about 1800 to around 1860; rarely after. I had always thought it was an early Waltham thing until recently. Here that style convention is used to highlight the watch Co name on this D.H.D. movement.
It's almost a foolproof way of identifying the age of an item, and it lasted a long time.
Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, and Art Deco only lasted about 25 years at the most.

DHD cock engravings are distinctive and none are exactly the same.

Not on the cock, Jon. Around Waltham and the serial number.
