50mm (5cm) across case without crown. Size 16s
Top British maker and rarely seen with this quality 21 jewel movement.
A nice gold filled half hunter by Thomas Russell of Liverpool. The case is a Dennison STAR 10 year guaranteed (from date of manufacture) each part is made from 2 plates of gold with a plate of composition between them, vastly superior to electroplating which only deposits a very thin layer of gold.
The case is 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. Super condition case, only very small insignificant marks, no signs of wear. Front and rear covers open to 90 degrees.
The dial is bright and clean, no cracks or chips, signed "Thos Russell & Son Liverpool". Roman numerals, blued steel hands.
The movement is Swiss made 21 Jewel and signed "Thos Russell & Son - 21 Jewels - Swiss Made", damascened, micro adjuster, screw in jewels. Running well and keeps good time.
Good mineral glass crystal to front cover in perfect condition, acrylic inner crystal in perfect condition.
Complete with 7mm curb link rolled gold Albert chain and gold plated shield fob with blank cartouche.
Presented in a fitted velvet pocket watch box and velvet pouch for chain.
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.
