Description
The watch has a Swiss 15-jewel hand-winding movement which is working nicely. The watch itself measures 31mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the fixed wire lugs... it would suit a man with a slimmer wrist or it would be lovely as a lady's watch. The case is 9 carat gold and there are hallmarks inside the case back for London 1927 with a case maker's mark for City Watch Case Co Ltd (Louis Arnould). The case is in good condition for such an early piece, just a little unevenness to the back but nothing serious. The lens is in good condition. The white enamel dial is signed with the name of the original retailer, H Samuel, Manchester, together with the brand name Accurate. There is a hairline crack running from the centre towards number 10, and some damage to the dial perimeter but this is mostly covered by the bezel. 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. 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.
