A nice, large solid 9k gold cased 1964 Trebex manual wind watch with the rare box and papers.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the Edinburgh hallmark in the watch case we know that this was assayed in 1963, and the original paperwork shows that it was sold in 1964. Either date could be considered valid.
The BWC case is all in good shape, save for light scratches. It doesn’t appear to have been polished, and is larger than average for the time. The cream dial is in fantastic condition, as is the acrylic crystal (note – one photo is taken with the glass and bezel removed to show how clean it is). The manual wind movement is the original AS1550, a high specification 21 jewel movement that is running, and looking, superb. The case back carries an engraving and the company of Stanton and Staveley name is on the watch box too. You can read more about Stanton and Staveley here. A new leather strap has been fitted with gold tone buckle.
UPDATE – The engraving on the caseback has now been polished out, and the last photo shows the finished result.
