J.W. BENSON Silver Open Face Pocket Watch London 1884
A high quality J.W. Benson open face pocket watch hallmarked for London 1884. This pocket watch has just been cleaned and serviced by my watchmaker!
Dial: The white enamel dial has black Roman numerals, outer minute divisions and a subsidiary second’s dial at the six. The dial has golden hands. The dial is signed:" J.W. Benson, London" in the upper centre.
Movement: The English Benson ¾ plate movement has blued screws. The movement is signed: "The Ludgate Watch, J.W. Benson, Patent No 4656, Best London Make, By Warrant To HM The Queen, Ludgate Hill, London" and numbered: No 25505. The movement is in great working condition; however, we cannot guarantee accuracy for an antique pocket watch.
Case: The pocket watch lies in a silver open face case with a smooth finish and monogram free cartouche. The inner side of the case and the inner side of the cuvette are both hallmarked for London 1884. The case is numbered: 25506. This pocket watch has an original JWB Case.
