Condition Report

The chain shows light wear throughout, the clasp appears secure. The watch dial is quite tarnished and worn and the glass is quite scuffed; the cylinder escape movement runs when wound, but has not been tested for accurate timekeeping; the case has a base metal cuvette and the gold case is quite thin, but shows light wear only. The watch diameter is 33.5mm. We recommend that all watches purchased at auction will require a full service.
