*Superb Fully Working Solid 9ct Gold Example, Stunning*
This is a very typical period design that was issued to officers during WWI, a lovely looking Solid Gold timepiece. The details on this rare example are:-
The case measures approx 33.5mm (inc the original onion shaped crown) or 31.7mm in diameter by 9.4mm thick (including the glass). The glass is in good condition with the expected light surface scratches. Moving onto the solid 9ct Gold case which I would class as very good or better! for its age and will close / snap secure and tight, it could do with a light polish (if at all), but on the whole a very nice looking case (please see the photos for more detail). It is clearly hallmarked marked inside with an English import / hallmark which date this timepiece to 1923. The original white porcelain enamel dial featureselegant period numerals and it is in good condition for its age, as it is much nicer in the flesh, no chips or cracks! The hour hand may have been very slightly longer at some stage of it life but it is perfectly fine as it is or very easily replaced. Peeking inside I find a lovely looking Schaffhausen (signed 'S & Co.' under a crown) jeweled mechanism, which winds and sets (button set) while keeping good time for its age (monitored for 12 hours). On the whole a lovely VERY collectable time piece crafted from solid 9ct Gold. sale! Please note that no guarantee can be given or implied on vintage or antique timepieces. Please see photos for more details.
International Watch Company's web site (www.iwc.ch) states, "From 1894 the London branch of this Anglo-Swiss firm was supplied with watches from Schaffhausen, and from 1898 the movements of these bore the mark 'S & Co.' under the crown.
