Condition Report

The dial is fine, but the glass shows some scuffing and wear. The movement looks fine and runs when wound, but remains untested for timekeeping. The gold cuvette is inscribed ‘No. 61835, Cylindre, 10 rubies, Qty Superieure’. The enamel to the front shows a few small chips. The enamel portrait to the reverse has some small scratches and wear across the surface and a largish chip to the edge, near the opening. The gross weight is 19gm. We recommend all watches purchased at auction will require a full service.
