Vintage Gentleman's absolutely outstanding, original Swiss/West German railway type pocket watch with beautiful ivory dial (which has the rarer red Arabic numbers to outer edge) in an extremely ornate 12 carat (tested) yellow gold plated railroad case. C~1970's. New old stock and complete with original watch chain, box and paperwork. Full working order and is an excellent timekeeper with a new battery just fitted. 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, 'snowflake' white dial in mint condition - absolutely no hairlines, marks or nibbles. Signed clearly in bold, black, very fancy script; KMC Quartz and signed below the sub dial in arched black script; MOVEMENT WEST GERMANY. Bold black Arabic numbers with black minute markers and bolder black five minute markers forming the chapter ring with the rarer red Arabic numbers (5 - 60) forming the outer chapter ring. Beautifully decorated with a large train/locomotive to centre which is thundering down the tracks with sm0ke billowing. Finely cut, original large black steel spade and whip hands and original black steel sweep hand all in lovely straight, unmarked order. Original slightly domed crystal in clear and bright condition with no marks or surface scratches. CASE:- The highly polished/extremely ornate (5cm diameter / 6.3cm from top of bow to base), 12 carat (tested) yellow gold plated, Swiss railroad case is heavy (has a pleasing solid feel in the hand and total watch weight is a very respectable 59 grams), robust and in wonderful condition - absolutely no indentations, wear or surface scratches. Beautifully adorned to the front bezel, case circumference and back cover with a very attractive, slightly raised and totally unworn leaf, flower and scrollwork decoration. The back cover again depicts a large, totally unworn and highly detailed locomotive to centre set upon an engine turned background and is decorated to the inside with very attractive 'fish scale' engine turning - the detail of which is as bright and crisp today as the day it was made. Still retains her original clear sticker to the inside which is stamped in black script with the makers name; EVACO S.A. BASE METAL SWISS MADE. Snaps on and off correctly, closing tightly with a very reassuring click. MOVEMENT:- The West German quartz movement is in superb bright and clean order and has just been checked and a new battery fitted. Hand set operates smoothly and correctly - the pull up/push down action is very firm and true. Lovely totally un-worn gold plated flat topped 'onion' crown. Good, original, beautifully decorated, un-worn gold plated horse shoe shaped bow. CHAIN;- Complete with the original 12ct gold plated traditional curb link pocket watch chain with large swivel dog clip to one end and chunky bolt ring to the other end.
