The watch has a stem-winding movement, grade number 1 (Model 1883) which is working nicely. Grade 1 was in production from 1886 until 1918. This particular movement carries the serial number 6,202,141 which dates it back to 1894. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover. The watch measures 56mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop, so larger than a standard 50mm pocket watch. The case is nickel and is in good condition, just a little gentle unevenness to the hinged case back. Interesting set of pseudo hallmarks inside the case back, purporting to be silver. The watch glass is in lovely condition. The dial looks good to the naked eye, just some rubbing on the number 12. On closer inspection, it looks like a section in the top half of the dial has been cleaned a little too enthusiastically and there are rub marks. There is also a hairline across the centre but quite difficult to see with the naked eye. The watch comes with a single chain, 33cm long including the T-bar and the clasp. The watch and chain come in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK & WORLDWIDE POSTAGE.
