Silver Pocket Watch 1885 Birmigham


This is a lovely silver pocket watch from 1885, making it 132 years old! This has not been tested and therefore is sold as NOT working, and for ornamentation only. It is key wound and in overall good condition. The enamel face is good although there are a couple of small hairline cracks to the left of the inner dial (see photos). The back has some engine-turned decoration and the hinges, front and back are good. The glass doesn’t have any chips or cracks, but does have some small surface scratches as you’d expect. Although not working, this is a beautiful accessory for your watch chain.
