I bet you didn't know that wrist watches were invented for women! Gents carried their watches in their vest pockets but most women garments were not pocket watch friendly. The pocket watch concept was just not practical for the ladies. This antique watch is a perfect example of the transitional watches of the early 1900's. It has two lugs that allow for a leather watch band.
Beautiful bright blue Guilloche enamel bezel for the solid 93.5 Sterling Silver case. Back cover is engraved with the owner's name and a dedication from her aunt. It reads "Louise Hartshorne Wood from Aunt Louise, 1914". Lovely engraving with a mix of type and script fonts. case is marked with the Lion Ranpant, 0.935 and K&L. No marks on the movement.
The band is original, although not in great condition. One of the Sterling Silver hinges has been lost to time and replaced with a regular large ring. This can be remedied if you want to locate the parts or the adapters on your own.
Case measures 1 1/16" in diameter excluding the crown. Case back opens, it is hinged. Movement is in excellent condition, enameled dial is perfect and so is the crystal. This is a mechanical movement, needs to be wound. It runs but we don't guarantee the accuracy.
Very Important! To set the time on this watch you must push the button near the crown, otherwise it will break the watch!
