empressissi™ is pleased to offer this all original and in excellent condition, large, heavy and impressive 18K solid yellow gold John Rotherham & Sons pocket watch from the early 1900s.
This watch is part of a large and mostly impressive, museum level collection of a retired IAF pilot that we are delighted to offer for sale in our website. In 2016 we serviced a small portion of his collection that was later auctioned at Christie's Geneve. We are now pleased to offer the substantial part of the collection for sale; these include repeaters, vintage chronographs, Hunter-cases (Savonettes) and open faces, most complex and interesting antique Swiss and American pocket watches of the finest standards.
The watch houses a large classic JR English pinset gilt caliber in overall excellent condition and running properly. The movement is cased in a large and heavy all 18K solid gold case hallmarked for Birmingham 1902 and 18K, in great shape with original bow, crown and mineral crystal. The case has an internal dust cover from 18K gold as well. All hinges are tight and secure and the net weight of the gold content in this case is 62 grams.
The dial is a factory original enamel white in fantastic condition, featuring Roman numerals and original set of classic hands.
This one of a kind pocket watch measures 54mm side to side (excluding crown).
