I've been a little quiet of late.... as work and 'saving' has got in the way of the addiction!
The saving hit a little snag today when I did a quick search of the bay on my Lunch break and spotted this newly listed beauty (In need of some tlc...) with a very reasonable 'Buy it Now' price of £75.... too reasonable to ignore imo (Im sure some of you will think im mad)
Description does not fill me with much confidence:
on offer is a very nice and complete trench watch,
although needing attention as overwound it would make a nice addition to any collector,
small chip to edge of enamel dial between 2-3,glass has some scratches,small dent to back of case,
pin set working ok but pin seems a little loose,
diameter of watch is 32mm excluding lugs and crown,all original hands present,no hallmarks to outer case but believe it to be silver(marks may be internal),presented to a 2nd lieut of the 25th royal fusiliers frontiersmen battalion by the legion of frontiersmen yorkshire command,bradford sub-unit on the 29th of may 1916.
thank you for looking.
Hopefully here tomorrow, if not Tuesday.
Borgel cased (assumed).... with interesting pin set location - no idea of the movement and no movement pics!
Back - where the added interest (and value) lies:
Bargain - I think so!
Thoughts/info very much welcomed at this stage.... proper pics to follow on its arrival!
