About this item
This is a superb example of an English silver pair case in 100% original condition and clear hallmarks for Chester 1887. The watch shows no signs of ever being used and is in superb condition
This watch has a fusee chain driven movement. These types of movements are extremely fragile and it is very easy to break the fusee chain if you have never handled one of these watches before and so consequently we do not cover this costly repair in the warranty.
Movement – the gilt full plate verge movement has a fusee chain with a lever escapement and a gold balance wheel. The movement is numbered 25831. The movement is in 100% mint condition – superb condition with even the blue steel screws having their original bloom
The movement has its original gilt dust cap
Inner case – the movement comes in an inner case, which has a hinged bezel and the watch is wound from the back, set from the front and is accessed from the front also. The case has its original bow and stem. It has a smooth plain finish and is in 99% mint condition – practically flawless apart from one later scratch on the back near the winding hole – a careless slip by a previous owner perhaps. Even the bow is stiff from never being used.
Outer case – the original and matching outer case has its original button and clasp. It has a smooth plain finish and is in 100% mint condition
Dial – the white enamel dial has its original pair of gilt hands plus a gilt sub seconds hand. The dial is in 100% mint condition
The watch has a domed mineral glass
The watch measures 50mm wide x 26mm high including the glass
The watch is key wound / key set
Victorian (1837 to 1901)
