The watch has an 11 jewel stem-winding movement, grade 10 which was in production from 1879 until 1896. This particular movement has the serial number 4,135,699 which dates it back to 1891. The movement is fully signed and it is working nicely. The watch is slightly larger than normal at 55mm diameter excluding the winding crown and loop… the standard size for a watch from this era is 50mm. The case is rolled gold and was made by H Muhr & Son. After re-organisation and the subsequent selling of the company, the business was absorbed into the Philadelphia Watch Case Company and later the Keystone Watch Case Company. The case is beautifully decorated and it is in good condition with just a gentle indentation to the front cover and light surface marks, nothing too detrimental at all. The acrylic lens is in lovely condition, a little marking but nothing serious. The winding crown pushes in to open the front cover which reveals a signed dial with lever set blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. There are a few hairline cracks but they are faint. The watch comes in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK & WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
