This beautiful piece of history is nearly 102 years old, this is officially “Antique” and it still looks incredible both on and off the wrist, best part is it's still running well too! This is an early 1918 Silver Trench watch, the enamel dial has no brand signed but the movement is signed Talis, though it is a Movado Caliber 420 which was introduced in the early 1910s! The case features both screw back and front and the watch still features its original glass crystal which is in great shape, the watch also features its original oversized onion crown and stem! It really does not get any more original than this. So much history packed into such a small object. Coming in at 36mm it is incredibly wearable still and does not look out of place on the wrist, most people cannot believe it when you tell them it is over 100 years old, to be honest I’m still amazed!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no original box or original paperwork. The watch is over 100+ years old and is officially “Antique”, it does feature signs of wear and age as to be expected. The dial is original as are the hands, the hands have been relumed, but this was done a long time ago due to the aging that has developed on them. The silver case is in great condition and had a light silver clean and polish, the movement runs great and is serviced.
This is one I will be enjoying and wanted to keep for longer! I truly have fallen in love with this watch and I know that as soon as it sells I will immediately regret it! But I’d be a terrible watch dealer if I kept them all...
