More Information

Movement – watch movement itself currently appears to be working although we think it would highly benefit from a service as it was initially slightly temperamental to get running (hands adjustment was stiff and chronograph seconds stopped in several random places), but it seems to have loosened up after a few times of testing functions, that being said we cannot fully guarantee the full working order of this pocket watch
Dial - 1 hairline crack between centre column and top subsidiary dial otherwise clean
Glass - some minor evidence of glue around edge otherwise clean
Hands - good
Case - only minor surface abrasions all over
Crown – hands adjust smoothly
