Antique circa 1889 B.W. Raymond railroad grade pocket watch size 18s works serial number 3459831 mounted in a 14K/8K rolled gold Granger B.W.C. Co Brooklyn Watch Case Company serial number 609595 featuring the Stag image. Watch works wind and run. Losing about 4 minutes in a 24 hour cycle. Works should be properly cleaned and serviced for best results. Fancy dial. Hands are in very good condition. Dial is in overall very good condition, no cracks but edge fleabites and one nick covered up by the ring. Crystal is a plastic replacement and will need to be reset. Works look clean.
Watch case is a 14k 8K rolled gold watch case. Outer case consistently tests 14K around so little wear overall to the top layer of gold. Some wear at the hing area. The front cover does not spring open the inner spring mechanism will need to be adjusted to address the opening. Front cover opens a little wider than the expected 90 degrees. Some light scratches to the inner case areas as would be expected of a pre-owned pocket watch of 120 plus years. Case housing is in very nice condition with minimal edge wear. Back cover features a hand decorated floral scene with a cabin designed within the shield. The back cover does have two distracting scratches as pictured. The front cover features a mirrored design of the back less the cabin and the initials JG in the shield. Crown & bale are in fine condition and working as they should.
