In excellent overall condition - Circa 1919 Silver trench watch, with a high-grade Swiss movement, exhibiting an under-slung ratchet wheel and bridge layout similar to Jaeger, Vacheron and Patek movements of the era. The watch has a perfect silver case with no indents and a perfect enamel dial with no hairline fractures or chips. The hands are a beautiful, thermally blued tone. This watch is one of the best examples I have seen from the time, and combining this with the high grade movement and design features, it perfectly encapsulates the trench watch of the era. Although un-branded, it is clearly of high quality and was imported by George Stockwell. 

 
The watch is a good size at 33mm and has recently been serviced by our watchmaker.

Serviced in the last month. There was significant wear which means the watch can operate anywhere between +6 seconds fast and +260 seconds fast in a day. Overall in everyday wear, it tends to be under 1 minute fast.

 

Case is 33 x 33mm without crown. The lug width is 12mm, with a depth of 10mm.
