Wonderful Vintage English / Swiss Art Deco 9k Gold Lady's Dress Watch Boxed 1938
A superb vintage/antique English Art Deco solid 9 carat gold lady's dress watch, number 128100, in an associated box retailed by H Samuel of Manchester. With abalone face, arabic numerals and fancy hands, it has its original 9 carat gold sprung bracelet and Swiss 8-jewel movement. It winds and the balance swings but then stops, but it appears complete so probably doesn't need much attention to get it going. The inner back is hallmarked Chester 1938 with maker's mark S&E and it's in very good condition with some evidence of its age and one bracelet section having been replaced, it weighs 14.1 grams unboxed and its case diameter is 21 mm, the bracelet stretching between 5 ½ and 7 ½ inches long. The box is missing its fitted inner.
The final photo shows it with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter.
