The watch has a key wound movement which is working well. The movement is signed H Samuel, Manchester. The movement is protected by an inner fitted cover. The watch comes with its original H Samuel key Harriet Samuel took over her father-in-law's clock-making business in 1862 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. The watch measures 52.4mm diameter excluding the stem and the loop. The case is silver and there are hallmarks inside the two back covers for Birmingham 1890 with a case maker's mark for H Samuel. The case has light surface marking from use but overall it is in nice condition for an 1890s piece. The acrylic lens is in nice condition. The enamel dial is signed H Samuel, Market St, Manchester. The dial has a very faint hairline crack above and below the sub seconds dial but otherwise it is in nice condition. The watch has its original gold hands and blued steel sub seconds dial. The watch will be sent in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK AND WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
