Receipt of watch
Photos are taken of the overall watch condition.
The bracelet is removed so that it may be cleaned separately. Details of the watch head showing a very nice case, dial and hands. The luminous material is identified as Tritium by the “T” either side of the “Swiss Made” and has mellowed to a nice subtle colour. Some scratches on the Hesalite (plastic) crystal. Some dirt on the case back which will be removed.
The case back is removed and the inner photographed. Some old watchmaker marks here but I don’t do this as it’s just damaging your watch.
With the case back removed, the shield is visible.
And with that removed, the movement, calibre 1861, can be seen. This looks to be in very nice condition and the serial number matches with the case.
