This is a Swiss timepiece made circa 1904. These larger watches were made for the English market and were made to fit into silver fronted leather cases with a hinged strut at the back. The watches would then be displayed on a desk or mantle piece.
This is a Swiss watch made circa 1910
The watch works for 36 hours and keeps time to around 10 minutes a day
Movement – the gilt ¾ plate movement has a lever escapement and 15 jewels. The movement is in 85% mint condition – a few oils smears
Case – the move comes in a nickel, white metal case, which has a hinged back and a snap on bezel. The case has an inner bezel which retains a mineral glass covering the movement. The case has a smooth plain finish and is in 90% mint condition – light marks and scratches but overall in excellent condition

The watch has a mineral glass

This is a leather case with a silver front piece. The silver has hallmarks for Birmingham 1904 and maker's marks for M Bros

The silver has a raised edge with scroll detailing. The rest of the front is decorated with engine turning in a sun burst pattern. The silver is in 95% mint condition – very little wear but three pins are missing but this does not effect the silver at all
