Description
The watch has a stem-winding movement, grade 386, which is working nicely. The movement is fully signed and the serial number 27,258,076 dates it back to 1925. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover upon which is a 1933 inscription to ex sergeant William Nicholson from his colleagues in the Glasgow police force. The later inscription suggests that the watch had been in stock at the jewellers for quite some time. The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the loop. The case is a gold filled case from the American Watch Case Company, and was originally guaranteed to wear 25 years, a great sign of quality. The case is in good condition with just light surface marking, and a couple of pin prick sized "dings" to the back. The winding crown pushes in to open the front cover. Inside there is an acrylic lens which is in good condition. Original glass lenses were often replaced with acrylic when they broke as it is a much more durable material. The signed dial is in good condition and has blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. The watch will be sent 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 minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch. All of our prices include worldwide postage. Credit / debit card purchases can be made over the telephone on 01386 750238 or you can proceed via the red Buy Now button on each listing page.
