The Vintage Wrist Watch Company is located in PERSHORE, UK
The watch has a stem-winding movement, Traveler grade, which is working nicely. The gilt movement is fully signed and the serial number 12,447,230 dates it back to 1903. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is silver and there are hallmarks inside the covers for Birmingham 1929, with a maker’s mark for the Birmingham based watch case maker Aaron Dennison. Dennisons made most of the cases for Waltham UK. The hallmarks and serial numbers confirm that the movement and case are not original to each other. In some instances, it was more economical to replace the entire movement rather than source and replace original components in the case of water damage for instance. The case has engine turned detail to both the front and back and it is in good condition, perhaps just a little rubbing. The front cover has a central lens surrounded by enamel filled Roman numerals. The front cover is released by pressing the winding crown. It is then opened with your thumb. Inside, the acrylic lens is in good condition. The signed dial is in good condition and it has blued steel hands, including the special half hunter hour hand so that the time can be read when the front cover is closed. 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.
