Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
It has clear hallmarks for London 1873 and assay marks for 18K.
The watch works well and keeps excellent time
Movement – the high quality gilt ¾ plate reverse fusee movement has a lever escapement and is free sprung. The movement has a diamond endstone and an adjusted balance. The movement is signed “Victor Kullberg, 105 Liverpool Road, London, No 2677”. Also there are two stamps and the words “The Gold Medals: Paris 1867, Havre 1868, Naples 1871, Trieste 1871. Maker to the Admiralty, Prize Medals Awarded, 1860, 1862, 1864”
The movement is in 95% mint condition – a few light scratches only.
Case – the movement comes in a heavy 18K gold Hunter case, which has clear marks for the case maker - JM – John Martin. The front cover pops crisply open when you press the winder in. The case has a smooth plain finish and is in 90% mint condition – the winder has lost its gold cover and the bow is also brassy
Dial – the white enamel dial has a full set of blue steel hands and is signed “Victor Kullberg, London, 2677”. The dial has a subsidiary seconds dial by the 9 and a wind indicator dial at the 3. The dial is in 80% mint condition – there is a hairline running between the two smaller dials going through the centre. There is a tiny hairline running from the wind indicator dial going to the 2 and the wind indicator dial itself has a little dirt around the edge and if the main dial was to be removed, this smaller dial may require some adhesive to secure it back into place.
The watch has a mineral glass
The watch is stem wound / pin set – when you press the pin in to set the hands, once finished, you must press down on a small pin next to it, to reset the pin back into place
