    A One Jewelled Beauty...

    Slightly ironic title...

    bought this a while back and have only just got around to looking at it.....

    It only cost a couple of quid and bought it because I liked the dial. I knew it needed attention... No crowns/stems! Glad to see there is a movement inside.

    It has a 1 jewel Ronda 1223 alarm Handwind.... Note... the 1 jewel is missing.

    Not getting much joy in finding donor parts/movement.... but found this identical 'Smiths' watch (dial mass produced and sold to different companys for branding??) with the luxary 17J Ronda...
