There are multiple high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. A very good looking well made and decorative pocket watch, it is a Goliath as mentioned which is about 30% larger than a standard pocket watch.The case is in lovely antique condition, its easel backed so you can use this table mounted, I think the idea was protection and to sit on a bedside table or desk so you dont have to whip out your watch every time you need to check the clock. The watch has a white porcelain hand painted dial with blue hands, its signed Asprey Bond Street London, Swiss made, it has the normal minute and hour hands and then under a seconds subsidiary dial. The case is silver plated I think as I cant see any hallmarks, it does have lots of engraving including the word Argentan, Swiss and serial numbers.
The back opens as one back plate, the original paper label is there which reads J Mortimer FBHI practical watchmaker jeweller 18 Kirkgate Ripon, you then open the second back plate which is also engraved with serial numbers and the word Argentan. The watch movement is protected by a glass plate which of course makes this an exhibition case.
The watch operates perfectly and has a lovely sound. Date letter Q for 1915. The ships anchor for Birmingham. Sideways facing Lion for 925/1000 grade sterling silver.Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
