The watch has a Swiss 15-jewel stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is signed “Everite” H Samuel, Manchester… Everite was H Samuel’s brand name for watches sold in their own shops. It is all protected by an inner hinged cover which has a few surface scratches. In 1862 when Harriet Samuel took over her father-in-law's clock-making business in Liverpool, she renamed the business H Samuel and moved the business to Manchester's Market Street where she ran the company as a mail order business. Later on, Harriet’s son concentrated on the retail side of the business, and the first H Samuel retail store opened in Preston in 1890, closely followed by branches in Rochdale and throughout Lancashire. Since then the company has become nationwide with branches in many British High Streets today. This particular watch measures 51mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is nickel and it is in lovely condition. The watch glass is in good condition. The signed dial looks good to the naked eye. If viewed through a magnifying loupe, there are three very faint short hairline cracks. The watch comes with a single chain, 23cm long including the T-bar and the clasp. The watch and chain come in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK & WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
