Gold case and mother of pearl dial combinations are usually nice, and this one is maybe nicer than that!
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the London hallmark on the inside of the case back we can accurately date this watch to being assayed in 1927.
The maker of the watch remains a mystery, but the movement identity may be revealed when the watch will be serviced – the makers marks used to be under the dial rather than on the back of the movement. Our initial thoughts are that it may be from AS. As mentioned, this watch will be fully serviced before leaving us.
For a ladies watch the size is impressive with a 25 mm case, made of solid 9k gold and has a hinged caseback. This is paired to a rolled gold sprung bracelet, in excellent order, but again not having any makers mark so we can not be sure it is original to the watch, or if it is a later, very well matched replacement. The mother or pearl dial is endlessly eye catching, and the video will show how this changes in the light better than the photos do. Some of the dial numerals have deteriorated, but the railroad minute track is largely complete.
This watch will be supplied with a presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
