A rather handsome Hebdomas 8 day silver full hunter.
Hallmarked for 0.800 Swiss silver.
Hebdomas full hunter pocket watch, keeps remarkably accurate time over several days and will run for 8 days.
The case measures 48mm (4.8cm) across the case, made of solid, fully hallmarked Swiss silver. The case springs open, with a depression of the crown as expected, the covers open close well. Engine turned pattern to front and back. No scratches, some minor marks and slight dings, mainly to side. Nothing major.
The mainspring has been examined and deemed fit for purpose and looks reasonably new, cleaned and oiled. The bridal within the barrel is intact and working as intended (a safety feature that prevents straining the mainspring) Once fully wound the bridal slips with a "click" this denotes the watch is fully wound and cannot tighten further, even if the user keeps trying. A nice feature.
The dial is bright and clean, signed "Hebdomas Patent", no hairline cracks , Arabic numbers.
The movement is extremely clean and running exceptionally well. Crown wind and set. Fully serviced. The visible balance is true-running.
Mineral glass crystal in perfect condition.
Presented in a luxury, fitted velvet, pocket watch box in red.
Complete with a sterling silver Albert chain with 2 silver, three pence coins. All hallmarked sterling silver and weighs 39g. The T bar is on a large jump ring and allows for length adjustment when wearing.
Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Father’s day or birthday present. A very nice piece. Recently Fully Serviced, including a mainspring inspection and oil.
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 has been inspected and deemed fit for purpose, oiled, and the piece will be bench-tested for several days.
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.
