This is a solid 18K gold Hunter with clear assay marks for 18K and the watch weighs in total 136g The watch has two train and an independent seconds plus a Quarter seconds jump seconds hand. To see a short video of the watch please click on the link below: http://youtu.be/GEeo13NUA84 The watch has been cleaned and serviced and keeps excellent time. However the star wheel which is used for the jumping fifths of a second, has one tooth which is slightly out of shape due to age. Just occasionally this will mesh with another wheel and cause the watch to stop. You then need to push the balance or gently rock the watch to get it working. No refunds or warranty will be given on this watch because it has a tendency to stop dead. Movement – the high grade nickel bridge movement has two mainspring barrels and two sets of train wheels. The movement has gold capped escape wheels and jewels. The movement has a stop and start independent seconds hand and jumping fifths seconds dial operated by a button on the side of the case. The movement is signed “A Huguenin & Sons, Locle”. The movement is in 60% mint condition – covered in tiny surface scratches

Case – the movement comes in a massive 18K gold Hunter case, which has a hinged inner, back and front cover. The case pops open slightly to 90 degrees when you press the dummy winder in and then needs to be lifted manually to the full 90 degrees opening. The inner cover has three holes – 2 are winding, 1 is for setting the hands. The inner is signed “A Huguenin & Sons, Locle, No 11583”. The case is decorated with coin edged sides and engine turning on the back and front. The case is in 70% mint condition – gold wire missing on the dummy winder, wear to the engine turning and a crease dent on the back cover

Dial – the white enamel dial has a full set of blue steel hands and a centre seconds hand for the independent centre seconds and a small pointer for the jumping fifths of seconds. The dial is signed “A. Huguenin & Sons, Locle”. The dial is in 95% mint condition – tiny marks only
