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.
