Description
(All text, heading, information and photographs within this listing are the intellectual property and copyright of; riversidemaximus23.) Ladies Swiss high grade 15 jewel Antique wrist watch with beautiful ivory porcelain dial and faceted bezel in a chunky, larger size original 9ct solid gold (fully hallmarked) Dennison patented, larger size 'drum' case. C ~1934. Looks to have been much loved and very well taken care of -her condition certainly reflects this. Full working order and is an excellent timekeeper (within +3/-3 minute per 24 hours) with plenty of room on the regulator (which is sat correctly in the central central position) for any further fine tuning. Fully checked by my highly experienced watchmaker and is guaranteed to be 100% authentic - a timepiece to grace any collection! DIAL;- Impressive and distinctive ivory porcelain dial in outstanding condition with no hairlines, marks or chips. Signed clearly to base in black arched script; SWISS. Bold black scrolled Arabic numbers (note the lovely little arrow tip to number 4) with raised gold minute markers and slightly larger raised gold diamond shaped 5 minute markers forming the chapter ring. The number 12 is in Cardinal red indicating the watch is post WW1. Original blued steel 'open diamond' hands which are in good straight un-marked order. Original slightly domed bevel edge glass (not acrylic) in amazingly clear and bright condition with very few little surface scratches commensurate with age. CASE;- The chunky (2.6cm diameter excluding the crown) original 9ct yellow gold, larger size Dennison 'drum' case with wonderful swing lugs and faceted bezel is heavy (has a pleasing solid feel on the wrist and total watch weight including the strap is 16.6 grams), robust and in super condition - absolutely no wear, just three tiny pin prick indentations to back cover only (so small are not showing up in the photographs, do not detract but mentioning for accuracy) and a few very light little overall surface scratches (mainly to the back) commensurate with age and use in her 87 years service. Clearly hallmarked to the side; 9 .375. All covers (both inside and out) still retain their original, high gloss, mirror finish. The back cover is beautifully adorned to the inside with the most wonderful 'fish scale' engine turning - the detail of which remains as crisp and clear today as the day it was made. Clearly hallmarked to centre; 9 .375, anchor (Birmingham Assay) and fancy capital letter; K - dating her to 1934. Also clearly stamped; CACHECASE PAT.269722 (this was the patent number) A.L.D - Aaron Lufkin Dennison - one of the founding Fathers or the American Waltham Watch Co., who moved to England to establish the Dennison case factory. They made cases for all the leading watch manufacturers of the era including Rolex and Omega. Also carries two old service marks, one of which looks to be dated and signed; FH 4.59 (April 1959). MOVEMENT;- The stem wound and set high grade 15 ruby jewelled 3/4 plate Swiss lever movement is in bright and clean order and again carries 'fish scale' engine turning to the top plates and 'wavy' engine turning to the bottom plate (always a sign of quality). Stamped clearly on the top plates; 15 JEWELS SWISS MADE. Balance action is absolutely tremendous in all positions (could not be any better) and is keeping excellent time with a sure, strong positive action - runs like a train. Winds extremely smoothly and fully (do not be afraid to fully wind, over-winding is the greatest horological myth!) Hand set operates smoothly and correctly - the pull out/push in action is very firm and true. Lovely large un-worn original flat topped 'onion' crown. STRAP:- Complete with a new old stock (same age as the watch and measures 21cm / 8 1/4" total length including the watch) red leather cocktail strap with gold tone fold over clasp which compliments the watch very well. This can easily be shortened by any competent jeweller if required. APPRAISAL;- A very attractive Swiss Ladies timepiece which as mentioned earlier was much loved and proudly cared for by the original owner - she will make a perfect gift and a heirloom to be enjoyed by your future generations! Ready to wear or display. Will be delivered in a new presentation box as shown and be very securely and safely packed.
