Description
(All text, heading, information and photographs within this listing are the intellectual property and copyright of; riversidemaximus23.) Gentleman's Swiss 'Vertex' high grade 15 jewel pocket watch with beautiful ivory porcelain dial in a highly polished 10 carat (stamped) rose gold filled (has a lovely soft pink hue and is known in the U.K as rolled gold) original Dennison case. C ~1926. Complete with original pouch. Full working order and has been fully checked/serviced by my highly experienced watchmaker, keeps excellent time (within +2/-2 minutes per 24 hours), guaranteed to be 100% authentic - a timepiece to grace any collection! DIAL;- Impressive and distinctive, high gloss, ivory porcelain dial in mint condition - absolutely no hairlines, marks or nibbles. Signed clearly in bold black script; VERTEX and signed in black arched script below the sub dial; SWISS MADE. Bold black Arabic numbers (note the lovely little arrow tip to number 4) with black minute markers, bolder black five minute markers and black diamond shaped 15 minute markers to chapter ring. Large sub dial with black Arabic numbers and black seconds chapters. Finely cut original bright blued steel spade and whip hands and original blued steel arrow tip seconds hand all in lovely straight, unmarked order. Original thick bevel edge glass (not acrylic) in amazing clear, bright condition with no scratches or marks and interestingly three tiny (pinprick) air bubbles showing under eye glass only. CASE;- The highly polished (4.9cm diameter / 6.9cm from top of bow to base), 10 carat (stamped) rose gold filled original Dennison case is heavy (has a pleasing solid feel in the hand and total watch weight is 104.8 grams), robust and in super condition - absolutely no wear, just one pin prick indentation to back cover, tiny indentation to either side of the case circumference (all so small are not showing up in the photographs, do not detract but mentioning for accuracy) and overall light and fine surface scratches (showing under eyeglass only) commensurate with age and use in her 95 years service. All covers (both inside and out) still retain their original, high gloss, mirror finish. The front bezel is hinged at 6 (they are more commonly a snap fit), opens correctly to exactly 90 degrees and closes tightly with a very reassuring click. The back cover and dust cover are again hinged at the 6 position, both open correctly to exactly 90 degrees, closing tightly and all three large hinges are true and firm with absolutely no play. Clearly stamped inside the back cover in arched script; MOON TRADE MARK (the 'Moon' cases are always 10ct gold filled), A.L.D DENNISON WATCH CASE Co LTD., (Aaron Lufkin Dennison - one of the founding Fathers of the American Waltham Watch Company who moved to England to establish the Dennison case factory. They made cases for all the leading watch manufacturers of the era including Rolex and Omega) and is numbered; 834075. This number is correctly, partially repeated to the back case curvette and the inside of the bezel lip; 4075. Also clearly stamped with the Dennison Trade symbols of a sun, crescent moon and star and carries an old service mark which looks to be dated; 26 (1926) and another done in September '21 from my long serving watch repairer. The inside of the dust cover (which has one tiny scratch - looks like someone once tested it to see if solid gold) is clearly stamped (again in arched script); ENGLISH MAKE GUARANTEED TO BE MADE OF TWO PLATES OF 10CT GOLD WITH PLATE OF COMPOSITION BETWEEN AND TO WEAR 20 YEARS. Numbered; 834075 26 O - the 26 is the Dennison date numbering system; 1926 and the O is the first letter of the Goldsmith at the Dennison factory who pinned the case joints - sadly on this occasion I have been unable to identify him. MOVEMENT;- The stem wound and set, Swiss high grade 15 ruby jewelled, 3/4 plate lever movement is in superb bright and clean order and as mentioned above has just been fully checked/serviced by my watch repairer. Carries the most wonderful bright 'fish scale' engine turning to the top plates - the detail of which remains as crisp and clear today as the day they were made. Has a compensated balance wheel with brass balance screws and two brass meantime screws (for precision timing), bright blued steel over coil Breguet hairspring, large ruby jewels in sunken chaton settings, ruby end stone and pallet jewels, attractive 'swirl' engine turning to the mainspring and ratchet barrel covers and original matching blued steel case screws. Clearly stamped on the top plates in arched black script; SWISS MADE 15 JEWELS and stamped around the mainspring barrel cover; *VERTEX*VERTEX. Balance action is absolutely tremendous in all positions (could not be any better) and is keeping excellent time with a sure, strong positive action. Winds extremely smoothly and fully (do not be afraid to fully wind, over-winding is the greatest horological myth!) Runs for over 30 hours on a full wind. Hand set operates smoothly and correctly. Lovely large un-worn rose gold filled 'onion' crown. Good original firm rose gold filled Dennison safety bow (little bit of wear showing to underside only from being carried on an Gentleman's watch chain over the years) which is correctly stamped; DQ - Dennison quality. APPRAISAL;- A Gentleman's very handsome Swiss timepiece which was much loved by the original owner - she will make a perfect gift and a heirloom to be enjoyed by your future generations! Ready to wear or display. Will be delivered with her original protective pouch and be securely and safely packed.
