This beautiful Art deco wristwatch has a beautiful cushiion shaped two piece, solid sterling silver snap back watch case. The hallmarks on the inside of the case are for 925 English sterling silver dating the watch to 1928 (BIRMINGHAM). The case shows honest wear and tear commensurate with its age, with scratches dings and nibbles showing over 90 years of everyday use.
There are NO inscriptions to the reverse. This solid sterling silver watch case measures just under 2.8cms (28mm) in diameter excluding the crown. This is a lovely FULLY SIGNED ORIGINAL BRIGHT WHITE enamel dial.

It has kept good time as tested over a 24 hour period to within approx a minute per day. It is smooth running and winds and sets as it should.
The'Onion' type crown seems to be original and is unsigned. This beautiful watch has a brand new black genuine Italian leather 18mm band fitted with a crocodile finish which is in excellent condition.
