English made throughout.
55mm (5.5cm) across case without crown. Size 16s
Top British maker and rarely seen with this centre seconds movement.
A rather nice full hunter by Thomas Russell of Liverpool. The case is a 9ct gold with full hallmarks for Chester 1917 and a makers mark of TR (Thos Russell). The outer edges of the front and rear cover are decorated in the style often seen with Thos Russell time pieces. A larger than usual case being 5.5 cm across. In very good condition, no scratches but does have a few pin point dings dotted around the front and rear cover polished areas, nothing too bad. Clean and bright throughout, all hinges are good, all covers open and close well. Front cover pops open with a depression of the crown, as it should. Front and rear covers open to 90 degrees.
The dial is bright and clean, signed "Thos Russell & Son - 12 Church St Liverpool". Roman numerals, gold hands. Small and very faint hairline just below the X at 10 O'clock. No chips.
The movement is English made "Warranted English" featuring centre seconds. Running well and keeps good time.
Good mineral glass crystal in perfect condition.
Presented in a fitted velvet pocket watch box.
Top piece and all English made.
Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present.
Recently Fully Serviced, including modern alloy "unbreakable" mainspring.
Servicing is defined as the piece being disassembled, cleaned, inspected and adjusted if necessary. It is then re-assembled and correctly oiled, timed for accuracy and adjusted if required. The mainspring will be replaced with a modern alloy type and the piece will be bench-tested for at least one day.
I restore all of my watches to a fully working condition. It is my aim to provide a watch that is not only running but working to a usable state. My watches can be worn and used for their intended purpose on a daily basis. The time keeping should certainly be within +- 5 minutes per 24 hours but I aim for +-3 or better. I do offer guarantees, the details of which can be found on my website for Time Pocket Watches. I have many years experience and a vast catalogue of Waltham spares and parts.
My highly detailed photographs show the watch in detail, this level of detail is not normally seen by the naked eye. The watch will look even better in real life.
