Description
The watch has a signed 17-jewel bumper automatic movement which is working nicely. Early automatic movements such as this one relied on the rotor ‘bumping’ backwards and forwards between two springs to maintain the power within the movement. Later automatic watches have the fully rotational rotor. The watch measures 33mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the handsomely shaped lugs. The main body of the case is gold plated while the case back is stainless steel. There are general light surface marks but overall the condition is good for a 1940s piece. The lens is in lovely condition. The signed dial has original hands, seconds sweep and outer red 24 hour numbers. Originally there would have been radium painted detail to the numbers and hands but this has been professionally removed at some stage. A new leather strap has been fitted. The watch comes in a new presentation box. ALL OF OUR PRICES INCLUDE UK & WORLDWIDE POSTAGE. 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. We are a VAT registered company and all purchases are covered by Consumer Regulations. Credit / debit card purchases can be made over the telephone on 01386 750238 or you can proceed via the red Buy Now button on each listing page. Non-UK buyers are welcome but payment can be made by Paypal only. Please note that we are an on-line only business and do not have facilities for callers. Our offices are open from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. With regards to appraisals / valuations, we receive a huge number of information requests each day and unfortunately do not have the manpower to deal with them all individually. Our advice would be to contact a local auctioneer for a full appraisal.
