1919 Silver Kendal & Dent Pocket Watch
Secure Payments By
Kendal & Dent were very well known watch makers and they also supplied ships' chronometers for the Admiralty. In later years, they bought in Swiss pocket watches for retail, such as the one we have here. The watch has a nicely jewelled Swiss stem-winding movement, which is working working well. The movement is signed Globe, Swiss made. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The watch itself measures 52.3mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the stem. The case is silver and there are silver import marks inside the two case backs for London 1919 with the importers mark for George Stoclwell. The case has light surface marking from use but overall it is in nice condition for a 1919 piece. The central cartouche on the back has monogrammed initials. The acrylic lens is in nice condition. The white enamel dial is signed Kendal & Dent London. Makers to the Admiralty. The double sunk dial has several faint hairline cracks between 10 & 11 o'clock and an old repair at 4 o'clock but otherwise it is in nice condition. The watch has its original blued steel Breguet style hands. The watch will come in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK AND WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
