This came today:
Inside the back cover is rather interesting:
The hallmarks are Swiss .935 (probably where the case was made) plus George Stockwell's GS mark as the importer into London and London assay mark .925 for 1914. And 84 in a box. This is a Russian mark for silver above .875 purity. Russian Hallmarks • Online Encyclopedia of Silver Marks, Hallmarks & Makers' Marks
In addition, it has the letter Y in a lozenge which is the mark (registered 1912) of Frey et cie. Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index (down near the bottom).
One of Adam's nurse's watches also has Frey's mark on the case https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/gal...ch-906520.html
The movement doesn't look to be a Gallet; and I can't ID it. No marks under the balance but if anyone can identify it I'd be grateful. Seems to be 10'''.
Apparently recently serviced by a BHI registered watchmaker - and keeping time so far. My wife likes it.
Thanks for reading. Any theories as to how it came to have a Russian mark inside very welcome.
