Description
The West End Watch Company was established in Bombay. The founder was Mr Droz, whose family company was located in St-Imier and they were neighbours with Longines. The WEW Co used Longines movements within some of their own watches, and they were also the agent for Longines in India until the late 1950s when the market was closed for the importation of Swiss watches. This particular watch has a hand-winding movement, 10.68Z, which is working nicely. The movement is signed Longines and the serial number 6,782,360 dates it back to 1944. The watch itself measures 31.5mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is stainless steel and is in good condition with just minor marking. The finish on the winding crown is pitted. The back of the watch has the West End logo together with CS(I) for Civil Service India. The lens is in good condition. The signed dial is in good condition with just a little marking and darkening. Feuille shaped hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. A new leather strap has been fitted. 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.
