Condition

An 18k gold full hunter grande sonnerie repeater pocket watch, keyless wind movement is currently functioning, although the repeat mechanism may need setting up, movement would also benefit from an overhaul as there is evidence of dried oil in some of the sinks, the dial is lightly scratched and tarnished, some of the numerals are fading, the hands are lightly marked, particularly to the boss, the glass is lightly scratched, case possesses light scratches and there is some rubbing to the engine turned design. Case is worn around the edges and does not close completely. Please note that this lot does not come with papers. Fellows do not guarantee the working order or accuracy of any watches sold.
