I posted this item elsewhere and didnt get so much as a single response. This item was purchased about two / three weeks ago and has not yet arrived. Im rather curious though about what may be the manufacturer, its approximate date, movement etc. Since I dont yet have the watch I cant check under the dial for a manufacturer label and the photos of the movement so nothing.
The watch was listed as an actual wrist watch from the early 1900's. Im not assuming this might be a very rare museum piece but actually think its worth what I paid for it. It is my personal favorite style, similar to a IWC Portofino. Large roman numerals on a black dial with sub seconds. The watch is very large 49mm dial, 60mm lug to lug and 12mm high. The movement looks like an old hunting case pocket watch with the crown at the 3. What I can find when searching for 'system glashutte' is some very fascinating watches from the late 1800's early 1900's from A.Lange and movements similar to A.Lange. The difference between the movements that I can see is just the finishing and application of the company name.
Could this be an early re-case like a lot of these 'wrist watches' from around this time?
Again, I dont expect anyhing I need to take to Antiques Roadshow but would like out of curiosity to know what I may have. I really cant wait to see it in person.
I opted out of purchasing a GP for this...
A few of photos, the rest are on the flickr page.
