Description
Vintage Gentleman's Services 'Army' pocket watch with beautiful original two tone dial and a highly polished chrome case. C ~1955. Looks to have been much loved and very well taken care of -her condition certainly reflects this. Full working order and is a good timekeeper (within +5/-5 minutes per 24 hours). Fully checked by my highly experienced watchmaker and is guaranteed to be 100% authentic - a timepiece to grace any collection! DIAL;- Impressive and distinctive, high gloss two tone silver and ivory dial in very near mint condition - absolutely no fading or marks and just one or two extremely tiny pin prick black 'specs' which are so small they not showing up in the photographs, do not detract in any way but mentioning for accuracy. Signed clearly in bold black very fancy arched script; Services ARMY and signed in black arched script to base of sub dial; MADE IN GT.BRITAIN. Bold black Arabic numbers with black minute markers and bolder black 5 minute markers forming the chapter ring. Recessed sub dial with black Arabic numbers and black seconds chapters. Finely cut, original bright blued steel dauphine hands and original black steel arrow tip seconds hand all in lovely straight, unmarked order. Original slightly domed crystal in amazingly clear and bright condition with very few short and fine little (micro) surface scratches showing under eyeglass only. CASE;- The highly polished (4.9cm diameter / 6.4cm from top of bow to base) original chrome case is heavy (has a pleasing solid feel in the hand and total watch weight is 61.5 grams), robust and in wonderful condition (please excuse the reflections in the pictures, was extremely difficult to photograph) - absolutely no wear or indentations and just a few extremely light and fine little overall surface scratches commensurate with age and use in her 66 years service. All covers (both inside and out) still retain their original, high gloss, mirror finish. The front and back covers snap on and off correctly, closing securely with a very reassuring click. MOVEMENT;- The stem wound and set 3/4 plate pin pallet movement is in superb clean order and has just been checked by my highly experienced watch maker. Stamped clearly on the top plates in arched script; MADE IN GT. BRITAIN and is numbered; 5511M (1955 Military). Balance action is excellent in all positions and is keeping good time with a sure, strong positive action and loud tick. Winds extremely smoothly and fully (do not be afraid to fully wind, over-winding is the greatest horological myth!) Hand set operates smoothly and correctly - the push down action is very firm and true. Lovely un-worn large chrome 'onion' crown. Good original firm, un-worn (looks to have never been carried on a watch chain) horseshoe shaped chrome bow. APPRAISAL;- A very handsome and highly impressive Gentleman's timepiece which as mentioned earlier was much loved and proudly cared for 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 in the new presentation box as shown and be very securely and safely packed. I always have a good selection of antique/vintage chrome watch chains listed and in stock which will compliment this watch well - please contact me if you have any specific requirements. *** WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE *** UK - FREE!
