Condition : bearing in mind the piece's age - overall , very good! Not being personally a watch expert I showed it to a Swiss watchmaker here locally and his opinion was that all it needs is a ' general service' ( perhaps long overdue! ). On the day I photographed it , it worked away happily. The fact that it should be given a bit of t.l.c. prompted us to price it accordingly. An item, we think, for a serious watch collector.
Open face, silver and 12k gold pocket watch, unsigned, Swiss made watch with case made by Galonné, Switzerland, Circa 1910.
