The quintessential English Pocket Watch
“A stately key wind Victorian pocket watch with a secret…”
This is a Harrison & Sons of Warwick English lever escapement Silver pocket watch.
The stamps to the case back, stem and inner case show it was hallmarked in London in 1864.
The off-white dial is hand-painted with black Roman numeration and a sub seconds dial sits at the 6 o’clock.
The Devil is in the detail…Opening the watch from the 6 o’clock catch, one sees a Diamond end stone adorning a finely engraved balance cock. Its brass dust cover fits neatly and sliding back its locking bar reveals the named English movement.
To set with key, open the case front and use the square centre arbour to adjust hands.
To wind, open casebook using the button at the top of the watch and wind anticlockwise until it stops -you will not overwind
Warranted for 5 years, this superb victorian watch movement has been gently cleaned and reassembled, oiled and tested over two weeks for accuracy.
A vintage key similar to the one in the photograph will be provided.
Please note that classic and antique watches cannot be considered water-resistant or water-proof by modern standards, even if stated on the piece itself. We do strive to renew seals and ensure the best protection from moisture that each watch will allow but we cannot guarrantee this work will survive prolonged exposure to liquids.
