The watch has a 15-jewel Swiss hand-winding movement which is working nicely. The watch measures 23mm wide excluding the winding crown and 31mm high excluding the lugs. The case is stainless steel and is stamped “Staybrite”. The alloy was marketed from 1924 by the Sheffield steel masters Thomas Firth & Sons, and was perfect for shaping into watch cases without heat, and without splitting. The case has light surface marks but overall is in lovely condition for a piece from the early 1940s. The convex lens has a handful of small marks, not overly noticeable to the naked eye. The dial is in its original finish with original hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and outer minute markers. A new leather strap has been fitted. The watch comes with its original completed Guarantee from a Brighton jewellers, dated 1941, and also original presentation box, it is tatty but still good to have.
