1940s 'The Bell' pocket watch by Quartier Fils.
The watch has a Swiss 15-jewel stem-winding movement which is working nicely. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover which has the name G Dunn engraved on it.
The watch measures 50mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is gold plated. It has some patches of rubbing around the hinge area where it has sat in a pocket.
The watch glass is in good condition and has a bevelled edge.
The dial is signed The Bell, a brand name registered by the Swiss company Quartier Fils SA in 1939. The dial has original blued steel hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and outer minute track.
The watch comes in a new presentation box.
