Antique Henry Sandoz Admiral pocket watch.
Sandoz founded the Tavannes Watch Company in 1891, together with his partners who were wealthy fabric merchants. The company was very successful and very soon they were exporting to several countries including Canada, Russia, United States, and the Far East.
By 1905, the company was producing 450,000 watches a year and over the next four years, this rose to three quarters of a million watches a year.
Sandoz registered the Admiral trademark in 1904 and it was one of the many trade names used by the Tacy Watch Company (the name Tacy was derived from Ta-vannes and Cy-ma). The style of this particular watch falls in line with this as it strongly suggests early 1920s. The watch has a 7 jewel movement with 2 adjustments which is working well. The movement is protected by an inner hinged cover which has a couple of mild bruises.
The watch measures 50.5mm diameter excluding the winding stem and the loop. The case is gold plated and is the Victory model made by the Philadelphia Watch Case Company. The case has light surface marks from use and some wear to the engine turned detail on the back but overall it is in nice condition for a 1920s piece.
The acrylic lens is in nice condition.
The white enamel dial is in nice condition and it has its original blued steel hands.
The watch will be sent in a new presentation box.
