This is a massive “pocket” Watch which measures 137mm wide x 185mm long x 27mm deep and weighs without the leather carrying case, 1025g – just over 1Kg
I have taken several images with this watch and another “smaller” watch. The other watch is a classic 49mm wide watch. This is to give you an idea of how big this Giant sized watch is. Please note that the smaller watch is not included with watch
The watch was made for and retailed by the prestigious Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company in Regent Street, London. The watch comes with its original leather case, which stands upright and would stand on a desk.
The watch works well and keeps excellent time. It only gains a few minute each day.
Movement – the gilt ¾ plate movement has a lever escapement and has an 8 day mainspring. The movement is in 95% mint condition
Case – the movement comes in a white metal open face case, which has a hinged inner, back and bezel. The case has a mirror finish inside and around the inside the bezel. The rest of the case has a smooth plain finish and is in 85% mint condition – a slightly patch of scratches on the back and an overall matt dull finish which is normal for watches like these which have sat in a case for a while. They can be professionally polished up beautifully
Dial – the white enamel dial has a full set of blue steel hands (the minute hand has lost its luminous paint) and is signed “8 Days”. The dial is in 99% mint condition
The watch has its original glass
The watch is stem wound /pin set
The watch comes in its original leather case lined with blue velvet and silk. The case is signed in gold “By Appointment to HM The King, Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company Ltd, 112 Regent Street, London W”
The case measures 190mm x 120mm x 30mm
The case is worn and scuffed in places but is still an excellent case and rare to find.
