This 16S pocketwatch is the best American Watchmaking had to offer. Beautifully decorated “Bar” movement featuring 23 gold-set jewels, adjusted 5 positions and solid gold train wheels. The dial is double sunk with matching hands. The case is an early “Salesman Display” case with original glass crystals on both the front and back. Overall the watch is in very good condition. The dial does have a few very small hairlines. This model is pendent wind and pendent set which makes it easy to own and use. This would a prefect desk clock and we will include a small clear lucite stand for that purpose.
*Photos are of the watch in its current, unrestored state.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order. Case cleaning and refinishing are also included. The extent of case refinishing, if any will be left up to the new owner.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration and case refinishing.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as “Sympathetic Restoration”; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don’t want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
