This is a watch sold by the Army and Navy Co-operative Society (here is some information on them). I bought it for several reasons.
Firstly it is a keyless, going barrel watch from 1888, unusual for an English watch of the period I think.
Secondly, the movement layout is unusual as well. It is a curious blend of the full plate and 3/4 plate layouts.
And lastly, a little research showed that the Army and Navy Co-operative Society sold some top drawer watches. Keyless fusees, freesprung fusees, Karrusels, repeaters etc. So I felt sure that this one, although just a seven jeweller, would be good quality.
Here are the sellers pictures. Sadly, the hands and crystal are missing. I have it apart right now and will post pictures of the movement restoration soon. Would anyone know who made the movement? Thanks in advance.
