Description
The watch has a good quality stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is signed The Usher Mfg Co with an address of Vittoria Street, Birmingham. The silversmith and jewellery company was established in Leicester by Reuben Usher (trading as Charles Usher). In 1913, the business was relocated to Birmingham where a watch making studio was opened. This movement would have been bought in from Switzerland, possibly Phenix Watch Co, and then finished and cased in Birmingham. The Usher Manufacturing Company name was registered at the end of the 1930s and the continued trading until 1951. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The watch itself measures 52mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is nickel. There are a couple of pin prick “dings” to the back and an indentation although not too deep. The watch glass is in good condition. There are some small nibbles to the bevelled edge but they are barely noticeable to the naked eye. The white enamel dial is signed No-Mag 820, which we would presume refers to the movement being non-magnetic. There are two hairline cracks running across the dial. Breguet style hands in a blued steel finish, 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. We are VAT registered and all purchases are covered by Consumer Regulations. We also welcome film / TV enquiries (we have supplied Peaky Blinders, Grantchester and Kenneth Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express to name just a few). Non-UK buyers are welcome but payment can be made by Paypal only. Please note that we are an on-line only business and do not have facilities for callers.
