I bought a bag of watches today and there was this strange 7 jewel Waltham.
I can't find any references to this model and wondering if anyone seen one like it before.
It is a decent size for the time it was produced. I'm guessing it is somewhere from 1926 to 1930's.
Please advise if you have any info....

It's a Model 1898, Grade No. 561, according to the movement's serial number (25,752,755) as found on the NAWCC database:

Pocketwatchdatabase.com corroborates the info for this movement and also has pics of four movements that match yours. Here's a link to that search, and here's a pic of what gets pulled up:

Looks like your guess on the 1926 production run is spot on.
