Vintage Gentleman's original Swiss 'Rone', high grade 17 jewel pocket watch with beautiful ivory dial in a highly polished 12 carat (tested) gold plated case. C ~1960's. Full working order and is an excellent timekeeper (within +2/-2 minute per 24 hours) with plenty of room on the regulator (which is sat correctly in the central position) for any further fine tuning. Fully checked and serviced by my highly experienced watchmaker and is guaranteed to be 100% authentic - a timepiece to grace any collection! DIAL;- Impressive and distinctive, high gloss, 'snowflake' white dial in mint condition - absolutely no hairlines, marks or nibbles. Signed clearly in bold, black very fancy script; RONE and signed above the sub dial in black script; INCABLOC 17 JEWELS with; SWISS MADE in arched black script below the sub dial. Bold black heavily scrolled Arabic numbers (note the lovely little arrow tip to number 4) with black minute markers and red Arabic numbers (13 - 24) forming the chapter ring. Large sub dial with black Arabic numbers and black seconds chapters. Finely cut, original black steel Breguet moon hands and original black steel arrow tip seconds hand all in lovely straight, unmarked order. Original thick bevel edge glass (not acrylic) in clear, bright condition with one or two extremely tiny (micro) surface scratches showing under eyeglass only. CASE;- The highly polished (4.8cm diameter / 6.9cm from top of bow to base), 12 carat (tested) gold plated case is heavy (has a pleasing solid feel in the hand and total watch weight is 84.2 grams), robust and in lovely condition - absolutely no wear or indentations and just little overall surface scratches and one or two on the back cover opening lip (these cases are notoriously difficult to open, none detract but mentioning for accuracy) commensurate with age and use in her 50+ years service. All covers (both inside and out) still retain their original, high gloss, mirror finish. The front cover, back cover and chrome dust cover all snap on and off correctly, closing tightly with a very reassuring click. Both the inside of the back and dust covers have a small scratch - looks like someone one tested it to see if solid gold. MOVEMENT;- The stem wound and set, Swiss 17 ruby jewelled, 3/4 plate Unitas lever movement is in superb bright and clean order and has just been fully checked and serviced. Clearly stamped on the engine turned top plates; SWISS SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS UNADJUSTED. Numbered on the bottom plate (to the side of the balance assembly with the Unitas calibre; 643 0445 and stamped UT. 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!) Hand set operates smoothly and correctly - the pull up/push down action is very firm and true. Lovely large un-worn gold plated 'onion' crown. Good, original, firm (looks to have never been carried on a watch chain) totally un-worn large gold plated bow. APPRAISAL;- A very handsome and highly impressive Gentleman's Vintage Swiss timepiece - 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 a new presentation box and be very securely and safely packed.
