A stunning example of an early WW1 solid silver trench watch in near original condition.
The watch has its original porcelain dial, it has no chips or hairline cracks, it has the classic red 12, the dial has Roman numerals, it has a desirable sub second dial. The hands are also original and have a lovely blue steel finish with no rusting or blemishes. The crystal is a replacement. The crown is the original onion shaped crown and has a good patina to it.
The case is of solid silver, it is in an un-polished condition, the wire lugs are intact and are straight for there age, front cover is a snap cover which fits tight to the case, rear cover is hinged, shuts tight to the case and has a good hinge, the rear cover has a lovely period engraving as you can see from the picture, inside the cover is hallmarked for the year 1913 -14, and has the London import mark. There are some small dents on the case and also wear through age and use.
The watch movement is in good un restored condition, marked Swiss made, it is a jeweled movement, it winds well, runs well, hands adjust smoothly, and keeps good time does loose slightly over 15 hours or so. As this is an unrestored watch and movement although running well now i would advise a service and clean due to its age.
Good large size 34mm aprox across including the crown.
A lovely addition to any colection of this type and apart from the crystal in super original condition.
