It is an exceptional piece. It is winding and working well keeping good time to within a couple of minutes per day , this watch has been serviced , i. Dismantled, ultrasonically cleaned , re-assembled , and tested.
The silver case is excellent no damage & has the A. Stamp and also the Brevet patent No 71363 Boite savonette pour montres (a hunter case for watches) granted June 1915 to a Cahrles Zurbrugg of Bienne. It seems he had a number of wristwatch patents between 1912 and 1917 then he.
Also the Rolex patent for this case was filed on the same day? & is only one digit different? It 100% is the same case Wilsdorf & Davies used but without the W&D stamp , either way it is the same Rolex patent and an unsigned Rebberg Aegler movement from bienne so a lot of. Coincidences if you ask me.
The movement is clean, winding well & working wonderfully it has a 15 Jewel movement stamp also as pictured. It is in superb vintage antique condition with no issues apart from the missing glass it is fine to wear.
The strap is WW1 period and well used so will need changing to wear safely. It would make an excellent birthday gift or present for the Half Hunter. Any info or leads into the history I would be very grateful. This WW1 era beauty measures around 37mm across inc crown 35mm without by 42mm lugs to lugs so a nice sized watch for the period.Ontre gousset, orologio da tasca , pocketwatch, watch collector, reloj antiguo, antique watch, demi hunter case, full hunter pocket watch, verge movement, solid silver, hallmarked silver, argento, argent, trench watches, officer watch, shrapnel protector guard, orologio militare, montre militaire, militarische armbanduhr uhrenfabrik.
