The watch has a seven jewel (two adjustments) stem-winding movement, identified as a Consul, which is working nicely. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. This inner cover has a few scratches, probably where a tool has slipped in the past. The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is the gold plated Star model from the Dennison Watch Case Company. Often Swiss movements were imported into the Uk to be cased, thus avoiding import duties on cases that contained precious metals. This particular case has quite a lot of rubbing to the plate but the base metal, which is brass, is a similar colour. The front cover is also slightly convex. The winding crown pushes in to open the front cover. Inside, there is an acrylic lens which has a couple of scratches to the centre, only about 3mm long and not immediately noticeable to the naked eye. The dial has original blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. There are a couple of hairline cracks between 10 and 11 but they are fairly faint. The watch comes in a new presentation box. All of our watches are checked over before listing, and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
