Description

1909 Rotherhams silver full hunter pocket watch.
The watch has a stem-winding movement, signed Rotherhams, London, which is working nicely and keeping good time to within five minutes over 24 hours. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover which has been beautifully engraved and reads, 'Presented to Mr H B Naylor, by Church Office bearers and members of the Young Men's Bible Class, St Pauls Wanganui'. So here we have an English made watch which was exported to New Zealand and is now back in its country of manufacture.
The case is silver and there are hallmarks inside the three covers for Birmingham 1909 with a maker's mark of JR for John Rotherham of Rotherham & Sons. The case has some fairly gentle unevenness to the front and back, and the engine turned detail has worn from years of use.
There is an indentation by the clasp on the front cover which means that when you push the winding crown to open the cover, it also needs to be opened with the aid of your finger. It has also caused a slight gap around the edge of the cover.
Inside there is a glass lens which is in good condition.
The dial is in lovely condition with pin-set blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and an outer minute track. The dial is signed with the name of the original retailer, John Forbes, Wanganui, listed as a watchmaker and jeweller.
The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
All of our watches are checked over before listing, and are also checked for accuracy which is usually within around +/- two to three minutes over 24 hours (unless otherwise stated), which is considered respectable for a vintage watch.
