I bought this watch a couple of days ago (buy it now).... no internal case pics, movement pics.... these were the best pics on the listing!
Not the prettiest watch in the world!!
What interested me was what looked like a screw front and back..... tried to get details from the seller (who sells a selection of what looks like car-boot/flee market items), but had no idea how to get the back off or age of the watch!
As a result.... took a complete gamble and bought it! Even though I have the watch in hand, I still dont know if this gamble paid off!!
First thing I noticed was all the grooves in the side of the case where someone had taken a knife to the case ..... thumb pressure was not enough to budge the case back! Was worried that the threads may have been damaged!
But... with the aid of a 'stress ball' wrapped in brown tape.... the case back unscrewed!
(work camera pics)
Was happy to see the case was made by dennison.... also happy to see the watch was fully hallmarked and could be dated to 1916..... have not mentioned yet... but the watch is really heavy!!!
Now onto the movement.... which 'ticks'...
I dont recognise the movement and cant see any makers marks.... but was surprised to see the movement was 17 jewel! Most I have seen from this period are 15 jewel!
Does anyone know what this is??
Thanks for any info/help!
