Price  Reserved

A jump hour, cylinder watch, with very stylish silver dial, in a wonderful, slim gold case.

MOVEMENT : Gilded cylinder movement. A few scratches to the gilding, and some tarnishing, but otherwise in good condition, and running well.

DIAL : A beautiful, engine turned silver, asymmetrical dial, with jump hour window at the top, lower large minute dial, and subsidiary seconds dial within the minute.
A few light marks and tiny dents around the edge, and a round mark at the top (this is impressed from the back of the dial), but in overall good condition. Blued steel hands.

CASE : Slim, rose gold case, engine turned to the back, front and band. Windows to the front, revealing jump hour and minutes. No marks except for the same serial number (43525 rubbed) stamped on curvette and back cover.

A little even wear to the engine turning, wear to the bow and a few light dents and scratches (the worst near the hinge on the front).

The hinges on the cuvette and front cover are fine and these snap shut correctly.
The hinge on the back cover is weak, with the sleeve worn badly. The hinge does hold the cover and the cover snaps shut firmly, but this requires repair.

The 2 crystals are fine.
