Antique Swiss gold filled pocket watch. The watch has a Swiss stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is stamped with the letter M. This appears to refer to the fact that the watch was originally sold in France, and it refers to the case material, ie, métal for a metal case other than gold or silver. We have also seen O for or (gold). Perhaps for import duty purposes. This marking system is sometimes seen on Omega movements, both wrist and pocket. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover which has some light marking. The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is gold filled and was made in Switzerland by the Geneva Watch Case Company. It is in good condition, just a couple of small “dings” to the hinged case back. The back of the watch has engine turned detail with a central vacant cartouche. The watch glass is in lovely condition. The enamel dial has its original hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. There is an arc shaped hairline over number 11 and a little discolouration around the centre. The watch comes in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK AND WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
