I have been lurking on WUS for a while now, and would like more information about the following watch. I have tried searching the forum and google, but cannot find anything.
The watch belonged to a family member who died in 1976 (born in the early 1900s). It has been suggested that this was a retirement gift, but I think it's earlier than that - perhaps a 21st birthday present? The dial has 'Hawkins, Wolverton' on it and, as I can't find anything online about them, I guess they were a small watch maker or retailer? The inside of the caseback has a hallmark and other markings that I cannot quite make out. The movement simply says 15 jewels. We dug this out today as recently I've become quite obsessed with watches and after a few winds of the crown it started ticking. Unfortunately I can't set the time on it, though.
Sorry about the image quality.
