Description

William Kay set up Kays of Worcester in 1890. Customers bought items from handbills in a folder and initially the goods on offer were limited to jewellery, watches, clocks and household items. Eventually William’s son Jack took over the running of the business. The company continued to expand and trade successfully, becoming one of Worcester’s largest employers.

This particular watch has a Swiss jewelled key-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is protected by an inner fitted cover. There is also a hinged silver cover .

The watch itself measures 50.4mm diameter excluding the stem and the loop. The case is Swiss silver and there are Swiss .935 silver marks inside the two case backs. The case has engine turned detail to the back and coin edge. The case has light surface marking from use and the odd small "ding" to the outer edge but overall it is in nice condition for a 1920s piece.

The glass lens is in nice condition.

The signed dial is in nice condition.

The watch has gold hands and a blued steel sub second hand.

The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
