Simply beautiful Art Deco 14K yellow gold Longines pocket watch. Original glass crystal, gold tone dial, large numbers, heavy watch for its size. This rare and unique pocket watch features a Longines works serial number 3857612, mounted in a AW (Waltham?) solid 14K gold open face case. The dial highlights 3 iconic brands; Longines, Black Starr & Frost and Gorham. It really makes you wonder who this fabulous piece of history was produced for and sold to by such an Iconic brand as Black Starr & Frost and what role Gorham played in it. Just an interesting bit of history beyond the jewelry element of the piece.
This pocket watch winds as runs as it should at the time of this listing. I cannot warrant or guarantee the accuracy or consistency of the pocket watch and its future performance.
Please do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
Size: 8s or possibly 7s; OD of works is approximately 36.38mm.
Case: 42.3mm approx across and 54mm approx high all inclusive, and a rise of 8.97mm to include the crystal
Weight: 51 Grams all Inclusive
Works; 17 Jewels, 5 Adjustments, 3857612, Longines W. Co., Swiss, 17.89m. Could most certainly use a proper cleaning and service.
Case; Inside back cover looks to be monogrammed, 14K, 43134 with 4 noted etches which I assume are repair/service notes. Severeal areas appear to have been "finely" hammered out to remove cover dings from the inside out so the outer cover does not reflect the service. Inner cover for works marked A.W. inside a shield, 43134. Outer case back side has 3 noted tiny edge dings visible, inner cover has deeper scratching where you open the cover. Polished scratches front sides and back.
Crystal; has some light scratches and one very small deeper scratch and one very small deeper "nicking" to the crystal. The crystal could stand to be properly cleaned and polished.
Dial & Hands; As pictured, the original dial is in excellent condition. The original hands appear to be in very good condition with some loss of the bluing on the metal.
All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Where appropriate, acid testing has been used as well. You will not buy gold or silver from me that does not meet the industry standards for how the piece is marked unless noted in the listing.
Gemstones have been tested using a presidium gem tester and have not been reviewed, except where noted, by a gemologist so please assume they are lab produced stones as my opinions are only my opinions. Diamonds have been verified using a presidium diamond tester, they have not been sized or graded by a gemologist. All measurements of stones have been done using a digital caliper, are approximate and may not be exact.
