1930's Rotary Claridge Gents Dress Watch
The story of Moise Dreyfuss of how the brand 'upped sticks from Switzerland and moved lock stock & barrel to London in 1915 is most probably a story in itself, arriving here a year after WW1 broke out and basing themselves in Chancery Lane, and 128 years later they are still there !
This watch is Gold Plated throughout and is in good condition for its age, a tiny chip to the glass in top right hand corner is hard to see. The dial shows some signs of aging but nothing that detracts from its overall appearance. On the back is an engraving from Margaret to Ron which dates this to 1938. Sometimes we wonder what happened to Margaret & Ron being as this was engraved just a year before the Second World War broke out, shame watches can't talk !
'Inside the case is a 17 Jewel Swiss Lever Movement signed with the Winged Wheel which is still the company logo !
Cosmetically in good condition for its age and running well
