Even in today's day and age, a distinguished gentleman carries a pocket watch. The nostalgic charm of winding up the watch is an exquisite feeling. The perfect gift for your husband, boyfriend or lover. Something he will always cherish. In fine working condition. The workmanship of 17 jewels and open face, flip out dial is amazing. I always test my pocket watches by carrying them on me for a week to ensure that they operate well. This is a 98-year-old watch and at some point in time, I recommend having it serviced by a qualified person. It is called a three-hand watch for the hours, minutes and, seconds. The Roman numerals add another level of distinction. As with any item that is 98 years old, there are nicks and scratches so, please zoom in the pictures to examine the condition carefully and ask questions. The previous owner's initials are engraved on the back which just adds to the overall appearance as the engraving is done in the old style. In two years, this watch will be an antique as it will be 100 years old. When carried, it feels like a gift of substance given the size and weight of the watch. If my gal gave me this as a gift, I would be in awe... FREE SHIPPING, fully insured.
