Movement is beautifully finished with raised gold jewel settings, gold balance screws, gold train wheels, true bridge plate design, mirror finish steelwork, crosshatch pattern nickel damaskeen, and a diamond endstone on the balance. Watch is fronted by its correct double-sunk enamel dial, and watch is housed in an attractive sterling silver and gold-filled hunting case with multicolor detail to its front and rear. Movement serial number is 2596355 which dates this watch to approximately 1914. Running and a beautiful movement with excellent color and luster. Dial is superb with just a minuscule pinpoint edge nick under the case bezel outside the 30 minute position.
Hour hand is missing a small bit of its tip, and seconds-hand is a gold colored replacement that has some bits of black color on its surface. Case is attractive overall but the front lid opens wide of 90 degrees (to approximately 110 degrees when fully opened), case shows little wear with excellent engraving detail, case front has a dark patina while its back has a lesser patina, and case has a few mild dings or nicks. Crown is seated somewhat high on pendant and may be a replacement. Please check out my other items this week for more great watches and watch related items for sale.- Check out the NAWCC!
