Whilst the maker is a mystery, this is a great looking art deco pocket watch in a solid sterling silver case.


From the Glasgow hallmark on the inside of the case back we can accurately date this watch to being assayed in 1927.  It may have been made a little earlier and then imported and assayed, but the styling is absolutely correct for the period too.


We don’t have many clues with this watch – the dial is unsigned, and the movement is just stamped SWISS MADE.  The case has a makers mark showing M&S – not Marks and Spencers, but it could be Mitchell and Son.  The movement uses a 3/4 plate like many German companies did, which does cover up a lot of the movement workings too.  It is however running strongly and has been oiled.  The dial has a matte finish and applied numbers, which are in a very art deco font.  The hand sand the numbers are golden coloured, and show no signs of tarnish.  The case back is engine turned and has a cartouche in the centre which has not been engraved.  If you want an old pocket watch that doesn’t look like it is nearly a century old, this could be for you (this would be perfect for period TV/Film appearances).

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon.  By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
