Very Mid-Century, this vintage Sovereign watch is still ticking. This is a wind-up watch made by the Benrus Watch Company.
It's got a Modernist look with the watch in a teak wood 'frame' that's asymmetrical. This hangs as a pendant from a 24-inch goldtone chain.
The watch-in-wood pendant measures 1 1/2 inches across by 2 5/8 inches high. We've been winding it each day and it's been keeping excellent time. It might be good to get the watch cleaned by a professional watchmaker to keep it going for the next 50 years.
The back of the watch is marked 'Base Metal'. There's no second hand. This is wonderful old-fashioned, vintage, low-tech, high-style, mid-century time-telling at its best.
