empressissi™ is pleased to offer this fantastic, well preserved large and strong running giant pocket watch, made in Switzerland around 1900 in a category known among collectors as 'Goliath pocket watches'.
The watch houses an early Swiss large gilt finish plates 8-days movement which is crown wind/pinset caliber running on 7-11 jewels. The movement is running strong, keeping good time.
The movement is cased in a sturdy unmarked Nickel-Steel case, appears similar to stainless steel in characteristics with an internal dust cover, an original firm bow, crown and mineral crystal with just a few signs, all in great shape. The crown neck appears to have been repaired in the past but it is hardly noticeable in regular inspection.
The dial is a factory original enamel with no damage. Large, impressive Roman exploding style numerals and an original set of hands.
This huge and impressive Goliath pocket watch measures 81mm side to side (excluding crown). It is shown in the last image with a Swiss 37mm round (about 6-size) pocket watch for reference (The smaller watch is not included).
