A GREAT WATCH IN FIELD WORN CONDITION! IN WORKING ORDER ON MY DESK AS I WRITE THIS.The 3 piece SCREW BACK AND BEZEL case to this beautiful watch is solid English sterling silver. IT IS AN EXCELLENT QUALITY SILVER CASE.
The case back has NO initials. It has, as you would expect light wear and some light polishing marks. The bezel and case back both screw on fine with no cross threading. The case is fully hall marked for solid silver.The hall marks date the watch to 1917 with an Assay mark for GLASGOW. The solid silver lugs show no evidence of any old repairs that I can see and are in good condition. I have gently polished the case and it is shining nicely.
THE WATCH MEASURES 3.2cms (32mm) across. Excluding the crown and lugs.
This stunning collectible watch has a nice original fantastic original RARE BLACK dial. I can see no major damage with just a small infill of the black finish at 10 oclock from previous chipping. It has beautiful sharp and crisp white painted Arabic numerals which are lovely and sharp. The lume shows some wear on all numerals. The dial also has a subsidiary dial which is in nice condition.The crystal is plastic and is brand new. As such it is in minty condition. The dial has nice golden steel'pointer' type hands which have lost most their lume but are in good condition. This is a beautifully finished original Swiss made crown wind and set gilded movement, which is 15 jewels. It is FULLY signed BY ZENITH. The movement is in working order but as with all vintage watches a full service would be recommended for optimum performance. It keeps time to with a couple of minutes per day as tested over 24 hours. The crown may be a later replacement and is in decent condition.
The movement has a nice compensated balance and micrometric adjustment on the balance cock. This beautiful and rare wrist watch has a brand new black genuine leather 12mm open ended band fitted which compliments this wristwatch superbly!
The watch and band measure a total of just over 8 and a half inches in total length. THIS IS A REALLY GOOD VERY COLLECTIBLE EARLY ZENITH OFFICERS TRENCH WATCH. THE WATCH IS A FANTASTIC EXAMPLE OF ITS TYPE. This watch has recently been checked. Please do not waste anyones time if you are not interested.
