This is a lovely, silver (sterling) pocket watch for a Gentleman, It has the wonderful ivory face which I love, and it is key wind and set. It is in working order. However, as soon as I got it home from England, I noticed the 2nd hand had fallen off. I have just lost my elderly watch maker, so I thought I'd take it back to England and have the second hand reattached. Stupidly, I opened the case to take the photo, and of course, the 2nd hand has fallen out and I can't find it. Still, anyone who knows a good watch maker, can get a 2nd hand cheaply. If I don't sell it before hand, I'll take it back to England on my next trip and have it repaired. This watch is a nice size, 2 inches in diameter. I just attempted to weigh it on my jewelry scales and it says O-Ld. I don't know what that means, and I've never seen that before on these scales. I have now read the fine print and the first scales doesn't go over 100 grams, I have another set of scales, and I weighed it and it said 130.3 grams. I've never weighed any jewelry that heavy before, but suffice it to say, the watch is not light, but of course it is not too heavy for a nice, silver , Albert chain. The watch is fully hallmarked for Chester, 1890, and of course, the lion passant is present. There is also a key with the watch.
