Description
The watch has a seven jewel stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is fully signed, and the serial number 20,495,656 dates it back to 1918. The watch measures 53mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop so slightly larger than a standard 50mm pocket watch. The case is Silveroid, an alloy used in watch cases around this time. Watch case makers had various names for the metal such as Silverore and Silverine. This is a good quality case with screw-on bezel and case back. Overall the case is in good condition, just one 4mm mark to the edge of the case back. The glass lens is in good condition, just remnants of old fixing adhesive around the bevelled edge, and a manufacturing bubble, less than 2mm diameter. The signed dial has blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. There is some old damage at number 2 but this is mostly covered by the bezel, and a faint hairline crack. The watch comes 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 to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch. We are a VAT registered company and all purchases are covered by Consumer Regulations. 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. All prices include UK shipping.

Our advice would be to contact a local auctioneer for a full appraisal.
