Description
This is a 1930s Thomas Russell Premier full hunter pocket watch and albert which has a Swiss stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is signed Thos Russell & Son, Liverpool together with the winged wheel logo. The company name of Thomas Russell & Son was established in 1859 when Thomas Russell (who was listed as a watchmaker as early as 1848) handed over the control of the business to Thomas Robert Russell and Alfred Holgate Russell. The company was very well respected and successful and they earned a Royal Warrant, ‘Makers to Queen Victoria’… they continued to benefit from this Warrant even after it ceased upon Victoria’s death in 1901 although its continued use was only tolerated for a short while. After the partnership split, Thomas Russell continued as the proprietor of the Russell Watch & Chronometer Manufactury and Alfred Russell continued as Thomas Russell & Son. Thomas Russell & Son achieved a Royal Warrant as makers to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. In 1881 they started importing watches from Switzerland. By 1938, the firm had become Thomas Russell & Son Watch Co Ltd. This particular watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is gold plated and it is in good condition with just slight unevenness to the front. The winding crown pushes in to open the front cover. Inside there is an acrylic lens which is in good condition. The original glass lenses were often replaced with acrylic when they broke as it is a much more durable material. The signed white enamel dial is in lovely condition and has blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. The watch comes with a double albert with each chain measuring 23cm long including the T-bar and the clasp. The watch and chain 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.
