The watch has a stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is by William Ehrhardt and is signed with the name of the retailer G A Baker, Gloucester. The movement is protected by an inner cover which is beautifully engraved with the wording, ‘Presented to W E Harris by the Foreman and Employees on his leaving Atlas Works, Gloucester, Sep 1897’. Atlas Works was an engineering company in Gloucester Quays. The watch measures 52mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is silver and there are hallmarks inside both case backs for Birmingham 1894 with the sponsor’s mark for William Ehrhardt. Overall, the case is in good condition with just the odd small surface mark. Originally there would have been engine turned detail to the back of the watch but most of this has worn down over the years. The main face of the watch glass is in good condition. There is a little nibbling and marking to the bevelled edge but nothing too serious at all. The dial is signed with the name of the original retailer of the watch, G A Baker of Gloucester who are still trading today. The dial looks good to the naked eye, if viewed through a magnifying loupe then a very faint hairline is just about visible. Pin-set blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and outer minute markers. The watch comes with a single silver chain, 38cm long. Hallmarked on the T-bar for 1899. Each of the links has the lion silver mark. The clasp is hallmarked but difficult to read. Total weight of the chain is 42g. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK & WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
