Vintage Swiss Crusader Gold Mens Watch Dennison Uk Gold Case:
This is a piece that I am selling for a friend. I do not know much about it or its history, so I am including many photos and will try to describe it as well as I can from what I can see. I took the photos after removing it from a small leather case in which it sat for many years. I wound it and it has been running for about 45 minutes so far and is keeping good time comparing it to the time on the computer. I did not polish it, but as I was waiting for the photos to upload, I did and it looks great. I guess I will start with the case, as the photos show, it opens and the watch movement comes out. The inside of the case has alot of info on it that I think that you will be able to see in the picture, but I will type it in also. The inside backing has a machined look. Starting from the top DENNISON /British Made. Between this and the following info, finely scratched into the center "blank" area is finely and precisely etched the following; 2034 / 10304 & 6/44 (date?) WW 2 31. Below this and going across what look like stampings 14 / 585 / what looks like a boat anchor sideways / H, below that ALD (stamping) under that 3160 engraved and under it an F engraved. On the outside, where the lower strap would attach there is 15 / 585 stamped. There are a couple of tiny dents at the top right corner just below where the upper strap attachent meets the case. The glass is plastic and is scratched and worn, it snaps in to the outer opening of the gold case. The watch movement is also an interesting jewel like piece. The face is dirty around the outer edge from 7 to 4. The hour numbers are gold as are the hands. It seems that the minute hand (longer) is missing its point tip (not sure if this is not bent or just meant to be blunt). Up to now it has been running for an hour and keeping good time. It says "CRUSADER" and "SWISS MADE" on the face. The back has a clear cover and you can see all the movements. On the clear area it says CRUSADER / Guaranteed and numerous patent numbers. On the inside it says SWISS MADE / Non-Magnetic Compensated / 15 Rubies / S ADJ.. This is all I can see with my glasses and a magnifying glass, if you would like more info or photos, send your email address and your request or question and I will do my best. Also if you know more, please let me know. I am sure that it can be professionally and sympathetically be cleaned / restored as it should be. A lovely piece that shows the incredible craftmanship of the period. A great piece for a collector. Thank you for looking.
