The Watch

On this rare occasion we actually have information from the gentleman who's father originally received this watch has his 21st Birthday present in 1926. This was his pride and joy and he kept great care of it, as we can see today, he even kept it on the original strap with it's 18k Buckle. The hallmarking on that Buckle also date to 1926 by the London Assay Office, it was sold by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. on 112 Regent Street here in London.

The extract from the archives date the manufacture of this watch to 1924. The crown houses a beautiful Blue Sapphire which is very fitting to the Art-Deco design which only becomes more apparent when you see the sides of the casing with the hand finished pattern that follows to the tip of the lugs. 

Points of Mention

The mainsprings was replaced 20 years ago, we have no service history on this watch. It has come back from a full service where a correction to a fault with the time setting mechanism was done. No parts were replaced and it was regulated afterwards. Service conducted by UK Expert Watch Maker Peter Roberts. The strap is definitely showing signs of age, but it's true to the watch and would recommend changing if you was to wear it.

Personal Note

I think this is easily one of the most beautiful watches I have had the pleasure to offer for sale. The Art-Deco design is so strong in the case and dial design, plus the way that case size wears on the wrist is incredible for the time and still looks impressive today. This is a rare opportunity to own a real piece of history that has been preserved so well, I truly hope the new owner will continue that.
