Description
Antique Victorian Swiss made fancy silver women's pocket watch, dating to around 1900, with hand painted enamel dial and gold detailing. The case is beautifully decorated with finely engraved details and a blank cartouche on the rear. It carries full Swiss hallmarks inside as required by the British Merchandise Act of 1887, when a silver standard of sterling or higher was needed on imported watches, forcing Swiss watches to be made of 935, the continental high silver standard. This watch carries the 0.935 stamp, as well as the three bears hallmarks of two larger stamps and one smaller. The bow on the top also carries worn hallmarks. Condition: Excellent, though untested. The watch mechanism requires a tiny key to wind which is missing so i have not been able to test it, however the case is clean and the enamel dial is undamaged. One of the tiny gold hands is slightly bent. I expect that the workings would need to be cleaning and serviced if you were planning on using the watch. The case is undamaged and has only very light surface age wear. There are several tiny numbers lightly scratched onto the inner rear case lid, which are probably old porn broker marks. Size: 35mm diameter, 50mm tall including the bow on the top.
