Fine condition, no dings, dents or scratches, surface scratches commensurate with age.

The Crescent Street movement is in fantastic condition, running well and keeping very good time. New (old stock) mineral glass fitted. Crown wind and set, this has been professionally converted from a lever set to crown by myself. This was done to make it easier to set the time for those not wanting the fuss of opening the front cover to adjust the time.
This is a re-cased watch. The silver case is not original to this particular movement. However, the case did house a Waltham originally.
Serviced including modern "unbreakable" alloy mainspring.
Complete with an original, antique fitted velvet box.
Great for wedding, graduation, retirement, Christmas, Fathers day or birthday present. A very nice piece.
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.
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.
